The music group is comprised of adult and youth members, featuring a wide array of instruments and a large repertoire of musical selections. The goals of the ensemble are to introduce Greek American children and adults to the art of playing Greek folk music and to accompany the Orpheus Dance Troupe at festivals, performances and competitions. The Orpheus Music Group has already established itself as one of the premiere folk ensembles in the area.

Auditions for people interested in singing Greek folk songs will also be conducted. Members of the singing group will have the opportunity to accompany the music group in its presentations. All instruction is conducted by professional experienced staff. Please reply to this e-mail or call 847-657-0958 if you are interested in auditioning.
