Something New

Everything’s new and unexpected in 2020, but the OCWC has been singing new and unexpected music all along! We can’t perform in person this holiday season, so we’re bringing you an online program of music that’s beautiful, thoughtful, and unique, including the world premiere of a newly commissioned work by renowned composer Dale Trumbore (written especially for us and especially for our virtual reality) and a special guest appearance by the fabulous soprano Marlissa Hudson. You won’t find another holiday concert like this one. Join us online Sunday, December 6 and choose your own musical adventure!

This program is free of charge. Sign up for our email newsletter by December 5 to receive your program link.

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.
