Orange Coast Choir, OCUUC’s Adult Choir
Our Mission is to light our hearts and the hearts of others by sharing inspirational music that enhances worship.
Orange Coast Choir rehearses every Thursday evening (excluding summer and holidays) at 7:30 pm on Zoom (https://zoom.us/j/581556612). The choir is featured in Sunday morning services a few times a month, in pre-recorded videos.
We love to make music that is beautiful, that touches the spirit, warms the heart, and stimulates the intellect. We enjoy working hard to achieve our goals, and we value the satisfaction that comes when we do well. We sing a variety of music – classical art music, Broadway songs, folk tune arrangements, world music, and even some jazz.
Few of us are trained singers, but we grow in sight singing and vocal technique at each rehearsal. Many have been in the choir for several years, but some are newcomers. We enjoy learning new things and are open to many new vocal experiences.
How to Join Orange Coast Choir
We welcome experienced singers, novices, and even youth. The only requirements are that you love to sing, can match pitch and follow directions. Reading music is an advantage but is not required. Contact Beth Syverson to find out when is the best week to jump in, or just show up early to a rehearsal and talk to Beth in person.
In addition to providing anthems and responses on Sunday morning, the Orange Coast Choir presents an annual spring concert.
Technical Help: Sound and Slideshows
Are you an audiophile? Do you like to work behind-the-scenes? We are looking for one or two more volunteers to help on Sunday mornings. These are incredibly important jobs that affect the quality of our worship services. Your commitment would be about once a month, and you would trained by shadowing another volunteer once or twice. In addition to the worship services, there are jobs for you at special events. You can volunteer to be a sound engineer, slideshow operatore, slideshow creator, box office volunteer, or set-up and clean-up crew. Contact Beth if you’re interested in contributing to the life of the church in this way.
