Help the OCWC reach new goals: Join the Board! We are seeking members of the community to join the OCWC Board. No prior board service experience is necessary, but a passion for choral music is required, and a desire to lead us to new heights! Board service for a nonprofit organization requires both a personal financial commitment and a time commitment, and we are no exception. We ask that you make a financial commitment to the organization that is personally significant to you, and is at least equal to the financial commitment made by our singers. Suggested donation is $1,000; minimum donation is $250. Board members are expected to raise funds for the OCWC. We are seeking someone with financial experience (finance, planning, accounting, auditing, investing, etc.) to assist us with fnancial statement review and long-term planning. If you or someone you know would like to learn more about board service, please let us know. Open terms vary from one to three years.

Mission Statement

The Orange County Women's Chorus creates and performs outstanding choral literature, engages and enriches our audiences, and celebrates women in music.

Description

As we begin our 20th year, the Orange County Women's Chorus is stronger than ever! What started with eight enterprising women in a living room has blossomed into one of the top amateur choruses in the region: a 45-voice ensemble performing diverse, challenging, and (above all) enjoyable music from all eras and cultures. Directed by Eliza Rubenstein since 2000, the OCWC has performed in some of our best local venues and with some of our finest local artists. Recent performances have taken us to the Rene and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall, the Orange County Performing Arts Center, Disney Hall's REDCAT Theater, the Irvine Barclay Theatre, and the 2012 western-division convention of the American Choral Directors' Association (one of only 14 choirs invited!).

Our wide-ranging repertoire has included medieval chants, multicultural folk songs, classical masterworks, protest songs, gospel tunes, and more. We're especially proud of our commitment to new music and up-and-coming musicians; we regularly commission new works for women's voices, and our conducting internship program, designed to encourage young women entering the field of choral conducting, has been a model for other choruses around the nation.

We were named 2014 Outstanding Arts Organization by Arts Orange County, and were a prizewinner in the International Musical Eisteddfod (festival) in Llangollen, Wales in July 2015. Many of our singers made their Carnegie Hall debut under the baton of Eliza Rubenstein singing Kirke Mechem's "Songs of the Slave" in June 2017.
