About

Orpheus Singers is one of the leading chamber choirs on the Isle of Wight. The choir was founded by Alan and Anne Burnett in 1992 to perform lesser known works of the classical music repertoire. Alan conducted it until the summer of 2014 when he retired, and Philip Fryer took over as conductor with Toni Rogers as Music Director.

Philip resigned for family reasons at the end of the 2017-18 season, and Toni announced her intention to retire at the end of the 2018-19 season. It was decided to appoint a Music Director to combine the functions of Conductor and Music Director, and it is hoped to have them in post at the beginning of 2019.Alan Burnett addressing the audience at the last concert he conducted - June 28th 2014.
