The Orpheus Male Voice Choir was formed in 1949 by a small group of enthusiastic male singers and early successes in competitive festivals soon led to an increase in membership.
The choir continued to grow and in 1981 came under the musical direction of Richard Bradley. The choir has progressed under his direction with many competition successes, broadcasts, recordings and concerts given throughout England, Wales, Germany, Holland, France and Sweden.
The choir has performed in concerts with many well-known international and local solo artists as well as some of the country’s leading brass bands, military bands and jazz groups.
The Orpheus performs in many varied venues and willingly supports charitable occasions. They also regularly promote their own concerts at major venues and play host to a variety of well-known performers as well as encouraging young people who are at the beginning of their professional careers. They can also be heard regularly in churches and halls in support of a variety of community events.
The choir rehearses at the Central Hall, Grimsby each week and is always delighted to welcome new members with or without experience. The choir continues under the musical direction of Richard Bradley and the accompanist is Esther Peterson both of whom are well known and well respected local musicians.
