Bio

Oberon Orchestra was created by members of Le Cabaret Mélange, Philadelphia's premier urban cabaret. After years of performing classic cabaret and show tune material in variety show format to sold out crowds, the move to perform mostly original songs was made. Led by musical director Rick Sorkin and androgynous five octave-ranged chanteuse Jeffrey Marsh, this melodic orchestral outfit puts the emphasis on songwriting, and the presentation of those songs. The visual has also always been important to the group, and each show is guaranteed to be both an aurally and visually stimulating experience. Oberon Orchestra counts Kurt Weill, David Bowie, Queen, Lou Reed and T. Rex as some of its major influences.
