Orpheus  Chamber Orchestra is a musician-led ensemble that harnesses the power of collaborative leadership to craft creative processes and orchestral performances of the highest caliber.

Through a democratically mindful, collaborative rehearsal structure entitled the Orpheus Process, Orpheus musicians strive to thread together the expertise and experience of each of its members to create an artistic process and performance in which the whole is representative of its parts.

Beyond the stage, Orpheus offers residencies that give students, musicians, educators, and more the opportunity to experience, model, and apply our innovative method of artistic collaboration.
