Look, Be, Leap!
We’ve been “causing treble” for a quarter century, and we want everyone to come to our party! You’ll hear a few songs you know, a handful you don’t, and the premiere of our newest commissioned work, by the wonderful Bay Area composer Ruth Huber.
We’re singing about friendship, courage, struggle, and the joy and power of raising our voices together throughout the years.
“This program reflects on what it means to make music as a community, and what it means for a family of ‘singin’ women’ to weather the passage of time and the shifting of society through our weekly gatherings,” says OCWC Artistic Director Eliza Rubenstein. “We’ll perform songs about social justice, growing older, and singing itself, and we’ll feature some specific musical recollections of important moments in our history. We’re a community of women who find security in taking risks together, and we’re confident that whether you’ve been following us since the beginning or this is your first OCWC concert, you’ll love this music and the sisterhood it represents!”
Board chair and founding member Mary Langsdorf says, “I am surrounded by women of incredible talent, on the stage and in the board room. I could not be more proud of who we are and how far we’ve come in 25 years, and I’m excited to share this season closing concert with our community!”
