The Orpheus Male Chorus of Phoenix, Arizona’s longest-standing, continuously performing choral arts organization, concludes its 87th season by presenting “From Pasadena to Broadway” with a series of three spring concerts, including one in Paradise Valley.

Upcoming concerts include:

  • 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 26, at the All Saints Lutheran church, 15649 N. 7th St. in Phoenix
  • 3 p.m. on Sunday, May 1, at the Camelback Bible Church, 3900 E. Standford Dr. in Paradise Valley

Orpheus salutes Broadway with classics from Fiddler on the Roof (“If I Were a Rich Man”), Guys and Dolls (“Luck Be a Lady”), Les Miserables (“Bring Him Home”), and Man of La Mancha (“I, Don Quixote.”) Orpheus will also be performing selections from its recent concert at the 2016 Western Division of the American Choral Directors Association Conference (ACDA) in Pasadena, Calif., according to a press release.

Orpheus made its debut on Christmas morning 1929 on KTAR-AM and has delighted audiences in venues large and small throughout Arizona and beyond with a diverse mix of classical and popular music, ranging from sacred works to raucous drinking songs.

Throughout its rich 87-year history, the chorus has toured in the U.S., Canada and Mexico, been featured in radio and TV broadcasts, and has sung the National Anthem at professional sporting events and for dignitaries, including John F. Kennedy. Orpheus has gained international acclaim on tours throughout Europe, Australia and New Zealand.
