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.
Come traveling with us … from home! After a year of computer screens and cancelled plans, we’re reminding ourselves of the wide world that awaits us in the post-pandemic era, and that we’ve always been able to visit through our music. Our spring performance is filled with songs about journeys and the places they take us. Open our interactive program and enjoy Johannes Brahms’ songs of wanderlust (featuring our friends from Men in Blaque); works from Japan, Argentina, Cuba, Croatia, and more; and a unique virtual collaboration with Zedashe, a musical ensemble from the Republic of Georgia, and the University of Chicago Women’s Ensemble.
