Registration Open for Orange County Mormon Choral Organization’s Spring Quarter

OCMCO will celebrate the American Heartland in its patriotic concert, “Goin’ Home,” June 19.

 
PRLog - Mar. 31, 2009 - FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif. – Singers of all ages are invited to register for the Orange County Mormon Choral Organization’s spring 2009 quarter, which begins April 14. Registration ends April 17.

Themed “Goin’ Home,” the patriotic concert will feature selections celebrating the heart and hearth of America, including Copland’s “Hoe Down” from Rodeo, selections from The Music Man, “Bring Him Home” from Les Miserables and many more inspiring arrangements of patriotic hymns and anthems.

The Orange County Mormon Choral Organization is composed of six performing ensembles – the Sunbeam Chorus (ages 4-6), the Children's Chorus (ages 6-10), the Youth Chorus (ages 10-14), the Concert Choir (ages 14-18), the Orange County Mormon Choir (for adult participants) and the Orange County Mormon Orchestra – to offer musical training and performance opportunity to musicians of all ages. Although the group’s membership is predominantly composed of members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, all interested community members are invited to join OCMCO.

The ensembles for children ages 4-14 are non-audition; the Concert Choir, Orange County Mormon Choir and the Orange County Mormon Orchestra are audition only. Auditions are by appointment – they will begin at 6 p.m. Tuesday, April 14, at the Mission Viejo Stake Center of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 27976 Marguerite Parkway, and at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 15, at the Newport Beach LDS chapel, 801 Dover Drive. Auditions for the orchestra are by appointment only. The first step for any ensemble (audition or non-audition) is to fill out an interest form online at http://www.ocmco.org.

Rehearsals for the spring quarter will begin Tuesday, April 14. Children and parents interested in the non-audition choirs may come to the first rehearsal without registering to learn about OCMCO. The Sunbeam Chorus, Children’s Chorus and Youth Chorus rehearse on Tuesday afternoons in Mission Viejo and on Thursday afternoons in Newport Beach. Participants in the non-audition choirs can choose between rehearsal dates and locations. The Concert Choir, Orange County Mormon Choir and the Orange County Mormon Orchestra rehearse Thursday evenings in Newport Beach.
