Join us for some “Old Philadelphia” seasonal cheer at the historic home of the Orpheus Club. In the spirit of the season, Hidden City has provided will be serving Traditional Plum Pudding with Wassail Punch, Stilton Cheese with Madeira Wine, and other savory fare in the resonant halls of the Orpheus Clubhouse.
This year the Orpheus Club celebrates 139 years of Orpheus concerts. It all began with the first presentation 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.
