MAP AND DIRECTIONS

"If music be the food of love, play on"
from Shakespeare's Twelfth Night

There's nothing like sharing the joy of singing.

Now in our eighth decade, the Chorale tries to uphold the tradition of choral excellence established so many years ago right here in Framingham. We rehearse weekly, September through May, in Framingham. Under the baton of our renowned Boston-area Music Director John Finney, each season we present three concerts — two Classical and one Pops. The classical concerts feature professional orchestra and soloists in a wide range of choral music. The Pops concert presents lighter music, often accompanied by our Associate Conductor, Darryl Hollister, on the piano.

The Heritage Chorale might be just right for you!

Not only do Chorale members love to sing, they love to sing with each other. Whether in rehearsals or performances, we feel very fortunate to be making wonderful music together.

Open Rehearsals and Auditions

Open Rehearsals let you see for yourself the energy, talent, and dedication of Heritage Chorale singers, our inspired music director, and expert accompanist. We admit members through auditions, generally held in September, November, and February following open rehearsal(s). Appointments for auditions can be made at an Open Rehearsal, or by contacting us for more information.

Auditions, conducted by our Music Director in the presence of the Chorale's Section Leaders, President, and Membership Chair, include:

  • Singing a set of warm-up exercises to provide a sense of your vocal range
  • Singing a solo of your choosing — such as a hymn, aria, show tune, even “My Country ‘Tis of Thee” — which can be accompanied by piano
  • Sight-reading one of the pieces of music already practiced in rehearsal

Qualification for Membership

(from the Heritage Chorale Bylaws)
“Membership is open to all individuals, regardless of race, color, creed, national origin, handicap, gender or sexual preference who: (i) pass an entrance audition by the music director/conductor; and (ii) pay membership and other fees as determined by the Board of Directors.”
