Choir 2017 Spring Jeptha Concert

We have been performing choral works since 1967, in various venues and various organizations. The OCS was officially formed in its current governance in 2007.

Our mission is to provide educational enrichment for Oakland County and metropolitan Detroit communities; to expand and enhance cultural experiences through dedication to the highest possible musical performance standards by presentation of significant classical and contemporary choral works; and to expose the listener to the finest choral literature in order to foster an appreciation of composers and singing.  

You are invited to join us for this Fall 2017 season. We are a non-audition choir. We ask that you can read music. This season we are featuring various graduate level students from Wayne State University and University of Michigan as choir singing coaches, to assist the Associate Conductor in preparation for the season.

Our concert date for the Baroque Around the World is November 19, 2017. Venue is St James Episcopal Church, Birmingham.

Cost or membership for the Fall 2017 semester is $65.

We normally perform in Oakland, Macomb and Wayne county. Our goal is to bring the greater Choral Masterworks to the Metro Detroit community, through concerts and choir training. If you can carry a tune and feel compelled to learn a few new pieces, please consider joining us this Fall.

We are excited to present two concerts for our 2017-2018 season that will feature the following:
