The Orpheus Club of Philadelphia

Orpheus Club on Stage

The Orpheus Club of Philadelphia welcomes you!  As we celebrate our 152st season, we will feature an engaging, refreshing and joyful array of concerts, events and experiences truly not to be missed. 

For all Associate Members and their guests, the Orpheus Club is making the most of this season with fantastic concerts, special events and access to unique experiences.  New this season, we will feature special events, contests, and much more. 

Please mark your calendars for our Christmas Concert on Wednesday, December 13 at Verizon Hall in the Kimmel Center, and look for additional information regarding our annual Twelfth Night Revels, which will run during our traditional January/February timeframe in early 2024. The Revels is one of the most popular events of the winter calendar, and the players will return to the OC stage this winter with afterglow parties to follow for all attendees. 

Upcoming events include the annual OC Quartet Contest in Spring 2024, our Midwinter Concert in March, and a return to the festive Devon Horse Show grounds for our Spring Concert in May.  There are sure to be additional surprises and events in store throughout the season. 

Orpheus events are open ONLY to Associate Members and their guests – do renew your membership today so that you can stay up-to-date with our activities and register for tickets and events online as soon as invitations launch. We look forward to celebrating with you this season!

Orpheus Club Quartet Contest

The Club

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 Verizon Hall at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts, the Academy of Music, and the 23rd Street Armory. Our repertoire spans classical, jazz and pop, with the Club often debuting new arrangements commissioned for its use. Each winter, at the Club’s colorful center city house, 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.
