The Orange Community Master Chorale was founded in 1994 and is a non-profit community based choir located in the city of Orange, in Orange County, California, U.S.A.  The OC Master Chorale has a reputation for being one of the finest community choral organizations in Southern California.  It is open to any person in Southern California who wishes to sing.


From it’s founding, The Orange Community Master Chorale  has been participating in and creating events that help the City of Orange to be more culturally divers and musically aware . Two events created by the chorus are the Tree Lighting and Candlelight Procession  for the  City of  Orange ( since1995) and “Third of July Program” a patriotic program for the 3rd of July (Since 1996)!  Each of these events has a draw of several thousand people.  The chorus is also been selected to be a featured choir for special performances annually such as the "Candlelight Procession " at Disneyland, in Anaheim, California.   And they have been featured entertainment for the Disney Community Service Awards.   We also present a fall and Spring concerts featuring works such as  Carmina Burana  by  Orff, Five Tudor Portraits by Ralph Vaughn Williams,  Verdi Requiem and  Lux Aeterna by Morten Lauridsen.  In May of 2009 the OC Master Chorale performed the Lux Aeterna in Carnegie Hall under the direction of their director Michael Short.  Our most recent performance was Carmina Burana by Carl Orff   with Symphony Irvine and the Master Chorale of Saddleback Valley


The Orange Community Master Chorale is a choir of 80 – 90  singers who’s talents are in demand on a year round schedule.   The Master Chorale has  completed two “European Concert Tours” one tour of the British Islands and a “Greek Concert Tour” in April of 2011.  During the summer of 2015 we had an amazing   “Concert Tour of Ireland” where were joined with the “Master Chorale of Saddleback Valley” for this exciting adventure in the summer of 2015.  Check the Pictures.  We have just returned from New York and are planning a concert tour of Scotland and Wales in the summer of 2019!
