The chorus originated from a group of 12 west Ottawa women who asked Music Director Robert Dueck  to form an all ladies chorus in 2011.

Word of mouth and local media helped recruit additional singers to the newly established West Ottawa Ladies Chorus(WOLC). From the original 12 voices the
​West Ottawa Ladies Chorus has grown to 35-40 members in any given term.

The chorus members share a love of music and a commitment to excellence.

Performances have become known for their creativity, diversity of musical styles and artistic excellence.
