Who We Are
The Heritage Chorale is now celebrating its 77th season. We are an auditioned mixed chorus whose mission is to perform high quality choral music in Boston’s Metrowest region. With around 100 singers from more than 30 communities, the Heritage Chorale is conducted by renowned Boston-area music director John Finney. We enjoy coming together to learn and perform choral music for music lovers throughout the Metrowest community.
Our season typically includes three concerts: two classical and one Pops. Our classical concerts feature professional orchestra and soloists in the performance of a wide range of choral music. Our Pops concert features lighter music with a more relaxed atmosphere at table seating, often featuring accompanist Darryl Hollister. The Chorale's rich musical heritage is exemplified by our past concert programs.
Rehearsals are held every Tuesday evening, September through mid-May, at Scott Hall, First Parish Church in Framingham. The Heritage Chorale is a member of the Greater Boston Choral Consortium.
The Heritage Chorale is a nonprofit organization of accomplished singers dedicated to performing high quality choral music. We are committed to standards of excellence in our rehearsals and performances, and seek to inspire in ourselves and our Metrowest audience a greater love of music and community.
How we are Governed and Funded
A nine-member elected Board of Directors manages the operational and financial affairs of the Heritage Chorale and meets monthly.
Financial support comes from ticket sales, contributors, advertisers, an annual craft fair, citrus sales, member dues, and grants from local companies and cultural councils.
