OCWC is one of the most well run non-profits I have had the honor of serving with. The artistic integrity is unparalleled and the organization's commitment to fostering new female choral directing talent is to be applauded.

Singing in OCWC has been one of the most rewarding and challenging experiences of my life. Challenging because much of the music we sing is not the average choral music and Eliza is constantly pushing us to be better and better. Rewarding because something extraordinary happens when women gather. Add music to that gathering and you have magic! The woman in the chorus are exceptional musicians and we have so much fun honing our craft together. The most common comment I have had from my friends and family who have come is something like "Wow! I had no idea how great you all would be!" and then they come back for more performances! I also love that we train and foster women conductors and wherever possible find music from women composers.

It's no wonder that this group was recently awarded Arts Orange County's "Outstanding Arts Organization 2014." Their music represents a wonderful range of genres and composers, always beautifully performed under the dynamic direction of Eliza Rubenstein. It's terrific to see--and hear--a group of women of various ages and interests come together to produce lovely sound.

This amazing group of musically gifted women serves the Orange County community with expressive vocal renditions of a broad array of classical and modern pieces. Their director has a knack for bringing out the best in them. Additionally, she brings her own gift of creative and lively verbal communication skills to the listening audience, providing background on each piece to paint a picture as to what brought about the creation of each. Outside performers are also brought in to many of the performances to add more variety and depth to the choral programs which are presented three times a year.

I feel blessed and fortunate to have become involved in supporting this group to the continue their excellent work making beautiful music and causing lots of "treble" in OC!

In this first year of being selected to sing with OCWC, I've been amazed at the depth and breadth of musical talent housed within this group of 36 women. It is led by an artistic director who is incredibly accomplished. She has tremendous creative gifts and directorial skills. The musical compositions selected for performance are technically challenging, stimulating and aurally pleasing. It is a joy to be a part of it, and to offer the gift of music to the public we serve with our voices and hearts.

This is a fabulous group of women led by an amazing director. They are meticulous in their preparation of wide variety of music. Everyone should get to hear them. I wish they could do a concert a month but this is not their full time job- they obviously do it for the love of singing.

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.

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.
