$2,000 Goal

Inclusive community, diversity, and reverence of the earth are core Orpheus values. Committed to beautiful music expressively sung, we strive for innovative musical experiences. By investing in Orpheus, you foster positive, transformative energy. Orpheus' growing membership brings new challenges, including a need for choir risers to let every face be seen and every voice be heard.


"While there are a plethora of choirs and chorales to choose from within the Denver area, I choose to sing with Orpheus because of the true sense of community felt both within the choir and from the choir's patrons.

Additionally, the repertoire is stellar, comprised of some traditional music alongside contemporary and original compositions. The music selections are unlike anything I've ever been a part of before; they are both challenging and fun to sing.

Orpheus, however, is more than just a choir that meets weekly (outside of COVID times, of course). Orpheus is more than just a group of people. In the end, Orpheus is an organization dedicated to bringing appreciation, education, and tolerance to an oft-overlooked (and frequently condemned) community-practitioners of earth-based religions and spiritualities- and does so through the guise of beautiful choral music." - Michelle K., member

Background Statement

Orpheus Pagan Chamber Choir (OPCC) was founded in 2009. Beginning with 15 members, the choir's first performance was at the 2010 Beltania Festival in Florence, CO. Its first official season featured three concerts: a sold-out 12th Night: A Yule Concert and Viking Feast, a second Beltania performance, and a spring concert in Denver, CO.

Between 2010 and 2013, OPCC's audience grew by over 300%. OPCC expanded its concert seasons with a Rite of Remembrance (2015), and a Family Concert (2017). Additional concerts in 2018-2019 included an appearance at the Denver Public Library and a performance on the Westside Live Presents concert series in Golden, CO.

OPCC's first fundraising event was in 2010: The Orpheus MeadFest, a showcase for the burgeoning Colorado mead industry and an international mead makers' competition. The Meadfest is now recognized as one of the 5 largest mead competitions in the country. In 2012, OPCC recorded its first CD, successfully supported by a crowdfunding campaign. This gained the choir international recognition.
