Yours In Song - Issue No. 18

April 2019

Greetings to Members of the Orpheus Club of Philadelphia! 

The April showers may have been a little strong, and the cherry blossoms may be fading; but there are a lot of exciting and fun events to look forward to as Orpheus swings into Spring! This issue will cover the following topics:

Spring Concert

Wednesday, March 8 at Verizon Hall

By this time, you should all have received your four tickets per membership.  If you have NOT received your tickets, please contact Maureen Walsh ASAP at or 215.641.1872

The program theme for the evening is “Back to Broadway,” and there will be a wonderful selection of theater world favorites plus a reprise of hit numbers from the 2019 Revels show, the winner of our singing member “Doc & Wamp” contest, and an OC debut for a talented young local performer.  Please join us for this memorable event or share your tickets with lucky friends.

Verizon Hall will open at 8pm for unreserved seating and a concert start time of 8:30pm. Present your tickets for admission. 

Founders Circle Members:

Please contact VP Timo Weymoth at with their attendance plans.  

Pre-Concert Dinner:

Dinner will be available at the Clubhouse – BY RESERVATION.  Please contact Maureen.  Open bar cocktails begin at 6pm followed by a dinner buffet and bus transportation to and from the Kimmel Center.  The $50 charge will be billed to your account. 

Dress Code:

Formal attire is requested (including black tie – or ORPHEUS COLORS, see below - for the gentlemen).


The Kimmel Center Bar will be open for cocktails from 7:30, and there will be a table by the Verizon Hall doors for “Will Call” tickets, OC Colors sales, and information on Associate Membership and special events.

After Party:

Also, consider joining us for the traditional post-concert AfterParty  at the Clubhouse immediately following the concert.  Again, this is strictly by reservation, as space is limited.  There is a $35  per person charge for an evening of open bar, delicious hors d’oeuvres and more musical entertainment.

New Associate Members Welcome Party


Thursday May 16th at the Clubhouse

Twice each year, we welcome new Associates to the Orpheus Family by inviting them and a spouse / guest (plus Associates who have proposed new members) to an exclusive, FREE cocktail party. 

It’s an easy-going occasion to meet fellow “Classmates ” (and have a class picture), tour the Clubhouse, get a brief orientation, and enjoy some libation, food and music.  Dress is business / cocktail attire. The Spring Party will be on Thursday, May 16th.

New members should be on the lookout for an email invitation from Co-Chairs Brad Schrader ( and Mark Still (

If you are proposing a new member this Spring, please inform them of this date. And put it on your calendar too! Come collect your etched OC tumbler.

Upcoming Orpheus Member Appearances

Radnor Races

On Saturday, May 18, the OC will have a sponsor tent next to the Picnic Patron area (see area “B” on the map). Please come by to say hello, have a libation and probably get to hear a little singing. Of course, the attending Singing Members will be singing the National Anthem at approximately 1pm, as part of the Opening Ceremonies. For more information go to

Singing Members will be marching in the parade and singing the Star Spangled Banner at 12:45pm at the Gladwyne celebration on May 27th. The parade is scheduled to start at noon.
