Reviews for Orange County Womens Chorus

Over the last eighteen years, Orange County Women's Chorus has become the premier treble chorus in Southern California. People still go to performances because they are friends of singers but come back repeatedly because of the excellence of the group. It is the most important vocal ensemble you will ever experience. They work hard to find affordable venues with excellent sound. You can afford to experience incredible music. Just go to: www.ocwomenschorus.org and purchase a season ticket.

The Orange County Women's Chorus has provided Southern California with the best in treble music for 15 years. It is an experience to donate money, time and talent to this incredible organization. People ask me whether I get tired of participating in the rehearsals, the performances and other rituals of a chorus. In the case of Orange County Women's Chorus, no second is spent without an incredible return on investment.

The best reward is seeing the enraptured faces of people in the audience as the chorus' voice waft over and envelope them. The music of this chorus can be life - restoring.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Hire an executive director to manage the volunteer administration.

Orange County Women's Chorus is an exciting part of my life. It is one of the most professional choruses in the area. Whenever treble music is well presented in Orange County, you know it was done by OCWC.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

participating for the last 11 years.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

change nothing.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The artistic product is delivers

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Dedicated and gracious about giving their time.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Pay for more female conducting interns, produce recordings of its best works, pay for a full time artistic director and professional section leaders. It could bring the chorus into the schools in the area and mentor local composers.

Ways to make it better...

There a paid executive director to relieve the some of the volunteer responsibilities.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

finding funds to meet the growing demands for the art.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Orange County Women's Chorus members continue to give their time, not only to OCWC, but also to social service organizations that better the lives of women.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

The OC women's chorus brings together women young to not-so-young, to share their love and passionate for the great art of song. They do this in concert with a passionthat is seen, heard and felt.

OCWC is an amazing organization that promotes women in music. Not only is it a warm and welcoming community of women, but it is also educational and thought-provoking. If you are looking for an organization that makes a real impact in the world of music, look no further!

I was so impressed by the Orange County Women's Chorus at a concert that I auditioned to sing with them the following August. This is my second season as a member, and I couldn't be happier. Every rehearsal and concert is such a pleasure that the time I volunteer doesn't feel like a sacrifice. The women within the chorus have created a wonderful community of mutual support, and I am very privileged to be a part of it.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

You cannot imagine how wonderful it was to see this group perform in Wales this past summer and to know they are right here in our area to enjoy! I am purchasing a season ticket this week. Please take the time to experience our Orange County talent.

Earlier this year, a colleague of mine took me to an Orange County Women's Chorus concert. It was a phenomenal concert; the sound the chorus makes is extraordinary. I was so impressed that I auditioned in August and was selected to sing with the group. I am so pleased to be singing with such a great organization. Both the other singers and the leadership of the OCWC are top notch!

The choir is extremely well-organized and the conductor is fantastic. This is also a very talented group of woman who are positive and supportive of each other. If there ever was a winning formula, this is it!

This amazing group of women has brought me so much enjoyment over the years. They perform the best music & support both emerging & lesser known women composers.
