The San Diego Women’s Chorus, with mixed emotions, is announcing the departure Celeste Oram, after more than 4 years as our Assistant to the Artistic Director. We are sad that she will be stepping down from her position at the end of this season but proud of her accomplishments as she completes her PhD and focuses on her music in New Zealand, to which she recently returned. It has been our privilege and our pleasure to work with Celeste and she will be greatly missed. Her grace, charm, and talent have enhanced our experience and made us better singers, and … Read More
The San Diego Women’s Chorus would not be the organization that we are today without the vision and leadership of our beloved founder, Dr. Cynthia Lawrence. A long-time community activist, Cynthia established the chorus in 1987 with 14 members who sang around a piano in her living room.
In conjunction with Cynthia’s 81st birthday celebration, SDWC created a new fund- The Dr. Cynthia Lawrence Founder’s Fund – to honor her deep and lasting legacy. Launched with a generous $10,000 matching gift from two of Cynthia’s close friends, any contributions made to the Dr. Cynthia Lawrence Founder’s Fund will be … Read More

Beautiful words shared from a singer from Resonance Women’s Chorus of Boulder: “Sometimes in band or choir, music requires players or singers to hold a note longer than they actually can hold a note. A 4-bar low G….. a long aria. In those cases, we were taught to mindfully stagger when we took a breath so the sound appeared uninterrupted. Everyone got to breathe, and the music stayed strong and vibrant.
