How the Women’s Chorus came into Being
The Berkeley Women’s Community Chorus, an affiliate of BCCO under the musical direction of Debra Golata, performed its spring concert, Here’s to Life, on Sunday, April 24.
As Berkeley Community Chorus & Orchestra enters its 50th year, we’re wondering what was happening 50 years ago, when Eugene Jones started the chorus?
Bill Hocker began taking photos of BCCO in the spring of 2011. He was originally attracted to the space and architecture of St. Joseph the Worker Church, but once he started photographing the chorus he was hooked.
