Location: California, USA
Choir type: Community Choirs
Choralnet friends are warmly invited to join the Orange County Women's Chorus for our holiday program, "The Strangest Moment in History." The concert's title and repertoire come from one author's description of the Annunciation---the moment, in Christian tradition, at which Mary learns of her destiny as the virgin mother of a savior. The OCWC is joined by mezzo-soprano Deborah Winsor Williams, as well as flute, harp, piano, and organ.
