After 19 years at the job, Richard Raub is stepping down as conductor of the Orange Coast (College) Chorale. However, he will continue to conduct the Orange Coast Singers, a smaller ensemble, and will remain as a full-time voice and choral instructor at the Costa Mesa college. Raub, who will be out of town until mid-July, could not be reached for comment. His resignation was confirmed Monday by Ted Baker, OCC's dean of fine arts. Baker said Raub will conduct four concerts with the Orange Coast Singers: a Haydn program Oct. 21 at the college; a program of seasonal favorites Dec. 17 at St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Tustin; a Bach program March 10, 1990, at the college, and a program to be announced May 5 at St. Paul's.

With his concert Saturday at the Red Hill Lutheran Church, conductor Richard Raub will end his 23-year career as head of the Orange Coast Singers and a faculty member at Orange Coast College. "It just seems the right time to leave," Raub, 59, said in a phone interview Tuesday from his office at the college. "Orange Coast has been a great place to teach and a great place to have the performance opportunities I've had. But it seems the right time now to move on. . . .

There were many fine things about Saturday's performance of Bach's "Passion According to St. John" at Orange Coast College in Costa Mesa, but the one that remains indelibly etched in memory is tenor Thomas Randle's profoundly moving performance in the role of Evangelist. It is the Evangelist who must deliver nearly all of the narrative portion of the text. With the kind of conviction and persuasiveness that make the title evangelist wholly appropriate, Randle brought vivid drama and poignancy to the familiar story.

They still call themselves the Orange Coast Singers, even though they'll be warbling in Tustin churches and at various other inland locales through April while their home base, the Robert B. Moore Theatre at Orange Coast College, is being renovated (to the tune of $1.6 million). Saturday they will offer a Christmas program at St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Tustin. "Acoustically, singing in churches is much better than singing at Orange Coast College," says Richard Raub, the Singers' director.

Baritone Hector Vasquez, 32, has won the $4,000 top prize in the San Francisco Opera Center's Merola Opera Program finals. One of 20 young, competing singers, Vasquez took the Schwabacher Memorial first-prize award for singing excerpts from Mascagni's "Cavalleria Rusticana," Gounod's "Faust" and Verdi's "Falstaff." "It's very much a boost for your career," Vasquez said by phone Thursday from his home in Brea. "But also on a personal level, it's the recognition of your work that it brings.

It's fairly easy to pull in a large audience with a concert devoted to the music of Beethoven, Mozart or Schubert, said Orange Coast Chorale conductor Richard Raub. But venturing a program of nothing but Poulenc is a different tune. That's why Raub is a little bit worried about the Poulenc program he will lead today at the Costa Mesa campus. "It's a little scary to take a risk like this," Raub said in a recent phone interview. "It's not doing the safe thing.

For Richard Raub's farewell performance as director of the Orange Coast Singers, overall theatricality, rather than subtleties of expression, ruled the occasion. The program--for which 13 alumni singers joined the 34-member group Saturday night at Red Hill Lutheran Church--lent dramatic closure to Raub's 23-year tenure on the Orange Coast College faculty. Choral dynamic levels in Mozart's "Grand" Mass in C minor, K.

Richard Raub joined the faculty of Orange Coast College in 1970. Since that time he has seen his choral program grow and shrink and grow, as enrollment fluctuates. For the present, though, his Orange Coast Chorale, composed of students and community members, appears to be in very healthy condition. Joined by the smaller College Singers, the 100-voice Chorale heroically met the challenges of Verdi's Requiem on Saturday evening at the Robert Moore Theatre. Raub has trained his forces well.

Major works--with a capital M--have occupied most of the choral programs at Orange Coast College, where Richard Raub has taught for nearly 18 years. One of those works favored by Raub is "Ein Deutsches Requiem" by Brahams, which the Orange Coast Chorale and Singers performed Saturday at the Robert Moore Theatre.

Whatever extracurricular virtues the Orange Coast Chorale may provide by bringing together community members and Orange Coast College students, one could not say that Mozart and Schubert were particularly well served Saturday by the chorale in a program directed by Richard Raub in the Robert B. Moore Theatre on campus in Costa Mesa. Two choral works--Mozart's "Vesperae Solennes de Confessore" in C and Schubert's Mass No. 6 in E-flat--were on the program with Mozart's Clarinet Concerto.
