About Us

Formed in May 2012 by Dr. Christopher Kiver, the Orpheus Singers is an auditioned chamber choir comprising community members and students at Penn State University. Now directed by Nathan Glocke, the choir comes together for specific projects. The Orpheus Singers has performed with groups such as the Pennsylvania Chamber Orchestra and Altoona Symphony Orchestra, at venues such as the Music at Penn’s Woods Festival (sponsored by Penn State University) and the Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts, and in larger productions such as Leonard Bernstein’s Mass (presented by Penn State University in April 2013), and Puccini’s La Bohème (March 2015).

Book us! The Orpheus Singers is available to perform in the State College / Altoona / Harrisburg area. For more information, email theorpheussingers@gmail.com.
