The Orpheus Club of Philadelphia

Founded in 1872, the Orpheus Club of Philadelphia is one of the longest-standing, independent, male choral societies in America. For nearly a century and a half, the Club has been a prominent fixture in the social and cultural life of the city of Philadelphia.

The Singing Membership consists of approximately eighty active members ranging in age from recent college graduates to men in their eighties and beyond.

The Club gives three formal concerts each year for its Associate Members and their guests in major Philadelphia venues, such as the Academy of Music, Lincoln Hall in the Union League of Philadelphia, and the Devon Horse Show grounds. Our repertoire spans classical, jazz and pop, with the Club often debuting new arrangements commissioned for its use. For four weeks each winter, at the Club’s colorful Center City clubhouse, a select group of Singing Members presents to Singing and Associate Members, an all-original musical satire, the “Twelfth Night Revels”, featuring popular songs specially arranged, comic skits, a loose plot, and elaborate costumes.

Proud of its history, the Orpheus Club continues to thrive and looks eagerly ahead to a bright future.
