Fall Preview Concert - Sunday, October 20
All eight OCC ensembles will give brief performances at our upcoming Fall Preview Concert on Sunday, October 20 from 3:00-5:00 pm at First United Methodist Church, 1376 Olive Street. We are always impressed with how much our choirs have learned by the time we have this concert. Family and friends are welcome, and admission is free!

Please consult your choir director to find out about call time and concert attire expectations. We plan to distribute new choir t-shirts at your choir rehearsals the week prior to the concert (starting October 14). If you have any questions, please contact your choir director or email info@oregonchildrenschoir.org.
Openings in Synergy and Counterpoint!
OCC’s high school a capella groups Synergy and Counterpoint still have openings for a few qualified singers. If you know any singers who might be interested in auditioning for these fun and energetic groups, please email the directors: lauren@oregonchildrenschoir.org (Synergy) and jacob@oregonchildrenschoir.org (Counterpoint).

Meet Synergy Director Lauren Kahn!
OCC welcomes our new director of Synergy, Lauren Kahn! Lauren has an extensive background directing, arranging, and singing a cappella music, and she has directed the Greater Eugene Chorus, an award-winning local barbershop chorus, since 2013. Lauren is a research scientist at the University of Oregon with a PhD in Psychology, and she studies the science of motivation, choice, identity, and behavior change. Importantly, she believes that these topics can also be explored through music, and she encourages singers to learn about themselves and the world through their musical stories.
