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.
High on the Mountain, Deep in the Valley: The Music of Johannes Brahms (with Men in Blaque)
Our international prizewinning friends, Men in Blaque (Joseph Huszti, Artistic Director), join us for a concert of works by one of the greatest of the Romantic masters: the sublime Johannes Brahms, whose mastery of intricate craft and profound emotion have made his music soul food for singers and listeners around the world. (Modernist composer Elliott Carter famously said of his student days, “We had to write choral pieces in the style of Brahms….which was distressing because in the end you realized how good Brahms is, and how bad you are.”) Come enjoy some of his best-loved works—sacred and secular, accompanied and a cappella, cheerful and poignant.
