Collaborative, Creative, Unique, Inclusive -- these are some of the words used to describe Orpheus.
Subscribing to a collaborative, democratic style is not always easy and comes with its own challenges. Orpheus is standing strong and ready for the decades ahead, launching a 50th Anniversary Campaign to bolster the endowment, continue community engagement programs with a lens of social impact, and enhance finances to remain nimble as an arts organization in an ever-changing financial and social environment. All this so that this amazing orchestra that started with an idea continues to have the resources needed to thrive and perform for our audiences and communities that are at the core of all we do.
"Our future may not only be about how we play, or what repertoire we add to the canon. It is about how we ground ourselves in our community, how we cooperate, how we collaborate, how we treat others with respect."
--Alexander Scheirle, Executive Director
