Born around a bonfire in the town of Occidental in 1978, the Occidental Community Choir has become a treasured West County cultural institution. Creative, quirky and consistently melodious, OCC celebrates its 40th Birthday this year! So, instead of having a midlife crisis and getting a tattoo, we’re observing this momentous occasion with a winter concert series celebrating four decades of making original music with our friends and neighbors in beautiful Sonoma County.
Directress Sarah Saulsbury will lovingly lead our 51-member ensemble as we revisit some of the best-loved songs of the winter holiday season written by choir members past and present. Skillfully weaving together song and story, poetry and theatrics, the OCC offers a joyful and eclectic winter holiday concert experience unlike any other. Come 1/2 hour early to see the slide show! Seasonal refreshments offered. Wheelchair Accessible.There will be commemorative pottery and gift items for sale, plus a special exhibit with 40 years of choir photos and memorabilia in the OCA Gallery.
