The Ophir Tones Chorus, is a all-female choir with members from Orange, Molong, Borenore and the Western region NSW.
The choir sings four part harmonies (“tenor”, “lead”, “baritone” and “bass”) from a selection of pop, folk, blues, jazz, soul, gospel and African styles – predominantly in a cappella (unaccompanied) style.
The choir is looking into learning some songs in the local Aboriginal dialect of the region, Wiradjuri.
The Ophir Tones seek to be active in local events by performing at community events and festivals.
The choir performed at the 2005 FOOD AFFAIR, Rotary Annual Dinner, Australia day in Cook Park and World AIDS Day at the Botanical Gardens.
In September 2005 the choir were hosts to South-African musician/ singer/ master-storyteller, Valanga Khoza.
