Congratulations to All our Choristers, Volunteers and Choir Directors!
Each choir gave outstanding performances at the Winter Concerts, and we couldn't be more proud. The concerts and receptions could not have happened without the support of our many volunteers! You can view videos of all the performances on our YouTube channel here (don't forget to subscribe!) or you can view the elementary school choirs playlist or the middle/high school choirs playlist. Please share the videos with your friends and family during the holidays!
The Oregon Young Men's Ensemble and Oregon Girlchoir perform "Peace" with OCC Executive Director Dana Abel at the Winter Concert. Dana wrote the song, and OCC Artistic Director Chris Dobson wrote the choral arrangement.

Singing for Seniors
Three of our choirs brought festive music to local residential senior living communities on December 16. Junior Girlchoir walked a couple blocks to the Olive Plaza to sing, Junior Boychoir ventured across the street to sing at The Tate, and the Oregon Girlchoir performed at the Waterford Grand. Each community thanked the choirs for their beautiful songs and mentioned how much their residents love to see and interact with the kids. Thank you singers!
