The Sisterhood of Cecilia

November 22 is the Feast of St. Cecilia. She’s not just the patron saint of music—she was also a woman of strength and spirituality, and we’re singing music by and about Cecilia and her mighty soul-sisters from long-ago eras and distant lands, from Hildegard to Enheduanna to Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz to Mirabai. Love gorgeous music about the power of the feminine spirit? This program is made for you.

Saturday, November 19 at 7:00 p.m. or Sunday, November 20 at 3:00 p.m.

St. Wilfrid of York Episcopal Church, 18631 Chapel Lane, Huntington Beach

The Orange County Women’s Chorus

The Orange County Women’s Chorus is an ensemble of more than 50 singing women representing more than 20 communities in Orange County as well as Los Angeles, San Bernardino, and San Diego counties. Our repertoire spans many eras and cultures, and ranges from the serious to the silly, but our commitment to performing quality music at the highest level never changes. We’ve been “causing treble” in Orange County since 1997, and as we celebrate our 25th anniversary in 2022 – 2023, we are more excited than ever to bring our music to the community. The Orange County Women’s Chorus made our Carnegie Hall debut on June 27, 2022 with a spotlight performance followed by Franz Joseph Haydn’s Lord Nelson Mass under the baton of Artistic Director, Eliza Rubenstein. We were named an “Outstanding Arts Organization” by Arts Orange County in 2014, and were a prizewinner at the International Musical Eisteddfod in Llangollen, Wales in 2015.

Upcoming Performances

Pass Over, Pass Through

You’ll be transfixed by the poetry and transported by the music.
