We Need You

While we do receive funding from Denver’s SCFD, we do still need you! There are many ways you can help:

  • Purchase tickets and come see us!
  • Purchase items at our 12th Night Silent Auction!
  • Purchase tickets and attend our MeadFest!
  • Direct donations!
  • Volunteer for/with various functions!

The Orpheus MeadFest

The Orpheus MeadFest is both an international competition and a mead tasting.

In 2019, our 9th Annual Orpheus MeadFest Competition had over 300 entries from all over the world.

The 2019 MeadFest Tasting featured over 70 meads from Colorado’s best meaderies, as well as our new Homebrewer’s Roundtable. Orpheus sang a selection of pieces before the winners of the competition were announced. 

More information about our 2020 MeadFest will be coming soon!

Friends and Family Concert Cancelled

May Concert Postponed

Orpheus shares the concerns of the community, and it is our top priority to safeguard the health of our supporters and choir members. Because of the current COVID-19 concerns, we have made the decision to cancel our Friends and Family concert.

At this time, we are still planning on having our full EarthSongs Spring concert; however, it will be postponed. We do not yet know when the new date will be, but will communicate this new date as soon as possible.

These unusual circumstances are a challenge for a nonprofit organization to remain financially stable. Orpheus is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization and we depend on our concerts to provide the majority of our funding. Please help us weather this impact by making a tax-deductible charitable donation.

In the meantime, please take all precautions to stay well. As always, thank you for your support.
