The City of Wolverhampton Orpheus Male Voice Choir was founded in 1943, so in 2013 we celebrated our 70th anniversary at a number of events. We consider ourselves ‘ambassadors’ of Wolverhampton, wearing the City’s crest with pride.
At present, the choir has about 25 members divided in to 4 sections; 1st Tenors, 2nd Tenors, Baritones & Basses. (TTBB) We have a Musical Director/Conductor, a Deputy Conductor, an Accompanist and Associate Accompanists. The choir is managed by a committee made up from members and we also have strong support from our Ladies Supporters Club, who manage the fundraising.
The choir is a registered charity (no. 1069449) and every year we sing to raise money for many charitable causes. In 2012 & 2013, we had a 2 year ‘community compact’ fundraising partnership raising a grand total of £4,100 for the Midlands Air Ambulance.
For 2014 & 2015 we partnered with The Royal British Legion raising £1,000.
