The Orpheus vision is to celebrate the transformational power of choral music as an agent of social change and a passionate medium of artistic expression. The 65-voice choir, under artistic director Robert Cooper, champions the new and unusual in choral performance, commissioning and introducing new works and performing overlooked masterpieces. With repertoire ranging from classical to jazz, a cappella to full orchestra, Orpheus has introduced audiences to many fascinating and accessible works from the current generation of leading composers. Our 54th season includes the Canadian premiere of Esenvalds’ Nordic Light Symphony, and a jazz Christmas spectacular. Orpheus supports young emerging vocal talent through its highly respected Sidgwick Scholars Program. We welcome enthusiastic singers for an “expect something different” experience!
