The City of Wolverhampton Orpheus Male Voice Choir was founded in 1943 & disbanded in 2021. We considered ourselves ‘ambassadors’ of Wolverhampton, wearing the City’s crest with pride.
The choir was a registered charity and every year we sang to raise money for many charitable causes.
In 2012 & 2013, we had a 2 year ‘community compact’ fundraising partnership raising a grand total of £4,100 for the Midlands Air Ambulance. For 2014 & 2015 we partnered with The Royal British Legion raising £1,000.
The choir had a varied repertoire of 50+ pieces, singing traditional male voice choir music, popular songs from musicals, ballads, British favourites, patriotic, sacred and novelty songs.
