Description

The Heritage Chorale is in its 78th season. During its long history, the Chorale has performed a wide range of both classical and contemporary choral works. In its earliest seasons, the chorus performed The Messiah each year to sell-out audiences. Most recently, the Chorale has performed works of contemporary composers Daniel Pinkham, Morten Lauridsen, John Rutter, Carl Orff, Randall Thompson, as well as Handel, Bach, Mozart, Haydn and Brahms.

In the spring of 2015 we will collaborate with the Bluegrass Band Monroe Crossing for a performance of “The World Beloved: A Bluegrass Mass”, along with spirituals and other American music.

In February, 1988, the Chorale added an annual Pops-style concert to its season. We delight in bringing lighter musical fare to our audience. Pops concerts have been designed around themes and have included popular pieces from opera, Disney melodies, and Broadway hits.

In July, 2010, the Chorale traveled on its first concert tour and performed in the European capitals of Vienna, Austria and Prague, Czech Republic, as well as the Melk Abbey. This was followed in the summer of 2012 by a tour to Canada, where we were privileged to bring our music to Montreal and Quebec City. In the summer of 2015 the Chorale will tour Ireland.

Past Collaborations

In some seasons, the Chorale has collaborated with area symphonic groups to perform major works. Recent performances include Mahler’s Symphony No. 2 and Brahms’ A German Requiem with the New Philharmonia Orchestra, Beethoven’s 9th Symphony with the Wellesley Symphony Orchestra, and Mendelssohn's Lobgesang with the Boston College Symphony Orchestra.
