Orpheus Summer Travel Society 2022

All aboard the new Orpheus Summer Travel Society, where Orpheus KC members and art lovers are invited to journey together on weekend getaways to explore opera summer festivals across the country! The Society launches June 2022, as we travel by train across the state to St. Louis to explore the local arts, stay in a trendy new boutique inn, and catch two spectacular summer productions by Opera Theatre of St. Louis – a classic, The Magic Flute, and a world premiere, Harvey Milk.

Don’t miss this opportunity to be part of the first Orpheus Summer Travel Society cohort as we make meaningful connections and build the next generation of opera enthusiasts.
