What people say

I hadn't sung in a choir for 30 years until one of the sopranos invited me to try out Meritáge. Love at first sight (or chord)! I'm alive again, and with a whole new bunch of friends.
Michael B.
Attending a Meritage concert is a delightful experience --- excellent choices of music performed by a wonderful choir; charming soloists; and interesting/entertaining comments by the Director.
Gloria Maxwell
Meritage has allowed me to do something for myself.  My life is very stressful and for just a while, I can forget about it and just do something for me.
Laura Taylor

From Mozart's "Te Deum" to
"Danny Boy" we bring you a widely varied repertoire of song calculated to enthrall or soothe everyone.

THE SMALL PRINT. Under its present name, Meritáge Vocal Arts has thrilled Orange County audiences with their choral music for over 15 years. Their highly gifted artistic directors have presented masterworks from such composers as Handel and Brahms to the modern day brilliance of Dan Forrest and Eric Whitacre.  Current objectives are to build better pathways for talented young singers from high school and college to continue choral music after they graduate; and to reach out more to the community to embody greater diversity.

Sounds good? Let's go!
