Join one of Philadelphia’s most renowned social clubs.
Fill your calendar with evenings of revelry, friendship and song by becoming an Associate Member of the Orpheus Club
Benefits of Associate Membership
Each year Singing Members present a Christmas Concert, a Mid-Winter Concert, and a Spring Concert. These have been held at Verizon Hall, the Academy of Music, the Devon Horse Show Grounds, and other venues. Musical selections span choral classics, spirituals, show tunes, American Songbook standards, folk songs, pop favorites, light classical, sea shanties, and novelty tunes. Each Associate Member receives FOUR tickets to each concert.
Tickets to our concerts are not sold individually and are only included, along with other benefits, in Orpheus Club membership.
Pre-Concert Dining is available in the Orpheus Clubhouse before concerts performed in Philadelphia, as well as before evening Revels performances. More information may be found in the “Dining Options” section of this website.
The Revels is an irreverent musical comedy written and performed by the Orpheus Club at the Clubhouse in Center City. It’s an evening of pure delight! Each Associate Member can reserve TWO seats to a performance of his/her choosing, subject to availability.
Associate Members may request an Orpheus performance for a private event at their home or organization, for an appropriate donation. Smaller groups, ensembles, or soloists are also available. Contact the Club Office.

Terms of Membership
Once you have submitted your application and have received favorable election by the Singing Members, you will be billed for annual dues according to my membership category:
- Founders Circle Associate Member: $1,000
- Associate Member: $495
- Associate Member (under 35 years of age): $395
Dues will be billed in full upon election to the Orpheus Club. Thereafter, membership dues will be billed every 12 months.

If the dues remain unpaid after thirty (30) days, the Club will charge your card on file.
If the Associate Member dues change, you will not be charged until the Orpheus Club contacts you and obtains your approval. You may cancel the auto-renew option at any time by providing written notice to the club office via mail or email at least 30 days before the your annual billing date.
Please contact us if you have any additional questions about associate club membership.
