Our Mission

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

Funding for "O Mother, Where Art Thou?" has been provided, in part, by a generous grant from the Robert J. and Doreen D. Marshall Fund for Dramatic Arts and Classical Music of the Orange County Community Foundation.
Support Us! Help Us Meet the Challenge!
The OCWC has now entered the second year of a three-year fundraising challenge by an anonymous donor to support artistic excellence. Ticket sales provide only 25% of our revenue in any given season. We rely on the generosity of patrons like you to provide engaging experiences for our audiences and opportunities to celebrate women in music. Join us in the second year of our challenge by helping us meet our matching goal of $2,500 in new or increased contributions by March 31! Won't you help by making a donation today?

The OCWC is home from our travels and better than ever! Join us for our 2015 - 2016 season, which features visions of Mary from around the world, a partnership with one of Orange County's best men's choruses, and a musical and culinary tasting menu you're sure to love.

O Mother, Where Art Thou?
Around the world in search of Mary
Journey with us as we follow the Virgin Mary around the world and through the ages, in songs from Medieval Europe, modern-day Japan, and everything in between! We'll be joined by a trio of harp, guitar, and marimba for California composer Conrad Susa's luscious Carols and Lullabies: Christmas in the Southwest, and you'll hear works by Poulenc, Praetorius, and many more as well.

American Anthems
Bernstein and beyond
"This will be our reply to violence: to make music more intensely, more beautifully, more devotedly than ever before." So said Leonard Bernstein, whose magnificent Chichester Psalms will highlight this very special performance with our guests, the Bel Canto chamber choir of Men Alive: The Orange County Gay Men's Chorus (Bob Gunn, Artistic Director), and a top-notch instrumental ensemble. More American choral classics--from the concert hall and the stage--round out this unforgettable program.
