The Orange County Women’s Chorus


The Orange County Women’s Chorus is an ensemble of more than 45 singing women who believe in raising our voices in song and solidarity! 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 enter our third decade, we are more excited than ever to bring our music to the community. The chorus was named an “Outstanding Arts Organization” by Arts Orange County in 2014, and was a prizewinner at the International Musical Eisteddfod in Llangollen, Wales in 2015. Many of our singers made their Carnegie Hall debut in June 2017 singing Kirke Mechem’s Songs of the Slave under the baton of Artistic Director, Eliza Rubenstein.

Adopt a Singer, Soprano 2 – Lauren Melville: California Newcomer!

Lauren is excited to join the OCWC for her first season. “I joined the OCWC because I’ve been in a choir essentially my whole life, and after being in Newport for a while and feeling a bit lost, I knew exactly what I was missing,” Lauren says. “Chorus was my home in college, and every Tuesday evening thus far I’ve been unbelievably grateful to have found this group of women.”

Lauren moved to Newport Beach from Cambridge, MA after going to school in Ohio (Kenyon College, where she double majored in Spanish and psychology) and growing up in Atlanta. “I’ve hopped around a lot. Before relocating to the west coast, I was working as a residential counselor at McLean Psychiatric Hospital in a treatment center for adolescent girls with borderline personality disorder. I moved as part of my self-proclaimed “life hiatus,” drawn by the warm weather and overall slightly less emotionally cold environment.”

Lauren LOVES hiking and spending time outdoors, and spends every waking moment planning for the time when she can get a cat, which she has preemptively named Owen. She is among many kindred spirits in the OCWC, hikers and cat-lovers alike!

Welcome to California, Lauren. We’re so glad you’re here!
