1968 - 1969

Orpheus Presents

Orpheus presents...an evening of the music Orpheus patrons have enjoyed and loved over the years, music that Orpheus members take a great deal of pleasure presenting at this time.


The construction, painting and storage of sets has long been a problem at Orpheus House and has stimulated the conception of "ORPHEUS PRESENTS" as an aid to the building fund for a much-needed workshop extension.


In 1906, Choir Director James A. Smith felt a need to provide another outlet for choristers to sing secular music. With the aid of Ottawa citizens who agreed with Mr. Smith, he formed the Orpheus Glee Club.  No one knows if he foresaw the present Orpheus organization at that time, but until his death on May 6, 1969, he retained an interest in the organization and continued to serve as Honourary Vice-President.


It is to Mr. Smith's memory that Orpheus dedicates this programme, in the hope that we may continue to present entertainment worthy of the support he lent Orpheus for 63 years.
