The Orpheus Club began with a performance given by the 22 original members at The Musical Fund Hall on December 7, 1872. Founded with the purpose to “attainment of the greatest possible excellence in the performance of part songs for male voice,” and later developing a tradition of performing for charity benefits, it is the oldest men’s singing club in the United States.
