We are a group of amateursmen who like to sing. Some of us have sung with
choral groups for many years, for others the SONS OF ORPHEUS is a first
time experience. Some of us have had a great deal of musical training,
others have had none. All of us have persisted until we perform unashamedly
before a musically aware public. We do make the following commitments
when we decide to join the group:
The group promises to welcome you, to help you master the arts of music and
diction, to tell jokes from time to time as needed to lighten the atmosphere,
and above all, to have a good time.
We practice each Wednesday evening from 7:00 to 9:00 P.M.,
- We agree to attend the Wednesday evening rehearsal with regularity and
Saturday morning rehearsals as they are needed.
- We do perform wearing the uniform of the day. Sometimes it is in Tuxedo (with
or without a black Stetson); sometimes in khaki slacks and blue
polo shirts. We even have Russian Rubashkas for the occasion.
- We annually make a $120.00 (tax-free) donation to the Treasury of the Sons of
Orpheus to help defray the expenses of production.
- We promise to try to master the pronunciation of the German "ü" and the French
- We promise to bring a pencil with us to each rehearsal for the purpose of
marking the music.
- From time to time, we each help with the work of the group:
production activities, publicity blitzes, arranging for concerts, taking care
of the music library, administrative chores, etc.

and most Saturdays from 8:30 to 10:00 A.M.,
St. Cyril Church
Northeast corner of Pima Street and Swan Road
Interested men are invited to visit and consider joining the group.
We welcome new singers at almost any time, but those who start singing
with us late each summer and early in the fall generally form the backbone
of the group. We perform many Holiday concerts, including a benefit
for the Tucson Community Food Bank, and six concerts with the Tucson
Boys Chorus at Mission San Xavier as a fundraiser for Mission restoration.
We perform our Annual Gala
Spring Concert at several Southern Arizona locations in April.
