2017 - 2018 Season

Remember 1997?

Google hadn’t yet incorporated as a company, the median price of a house in Orange County was $211,000, and the world was just getting to know a spectacled kid named Harry Potter. But the Spice Girls weren’t the only all-female singing group making news that year: 1997 was also when the OCWC was born, so we’re celebrating our 20th anniversary this season with a slate of programs that pay tribute to our past while looking ahead to a bright, exciting future.  


iSing of a Maiden

It’s digital, it’s mystical, it’s anything but typical! You can turn your phone on for our holiday concerts, when we’ll add the magic of technology to the beauty of the human voice for a unique program we promise you won’t soon forget. You’ll hear new works for chorus and electronic media alongside more traditional favorites and Eric Whitacre’s luscious Five Hebrew Love Songs—and we’ll invite you to try your hand at participating in some of the music with your smartphone! Not a tech whiz? Don’t worry, you’ll enjoy every bit of this concert even if your phone still has a dial and a cord! Come welcome the holiday season with a concert like no other.

Haydn's Creation

Go on—just try to find a more joyous, funny, all-around mood-lifting work in the choral-orchestral repertoire than Franz Joseph Haydn’s oratorio The Creation! Since the OCWC and our award-winning friends Men in Blaque (Joseph Huszti, Artistic Director) are both celebrating the 20th anniversaries of our own “creations,” we’re combining forces to bring you a full-scale performance of this most cheerful of masterworks. We’ll sing the work in English and feature a trio of stunning soloists and a full orchestra. “The heavens are telling” you that you won’t want to miss this one!

20th Anniversary Celebration

Everyone’s invited to the party! To celebrate two decades of making extraordinary music with extraordinary women, we’re singing some of our all-time favorites alongside some fantastic new additions to our repertoire. After the concert, stay around for a birthday bash with drinks, hors d’oeuvres, and (of course) cake! One performance only, and space is limited, so buy your tickets early to ensure a spot.
