There's nothing like sharing the joy of singing.

Now in our 87th season, the Chorale tries to uphold the tradition of choral excellence established so many years ago right here in Framingham. Our typical season includes three concerts, one in the Fall, a Pops concert in the Winter, and a Spring concert. We rehearse weekly, September through May. Under the baton of Music Director Steven Lipsitt, performances include a wide range of choral music — often with a professional orchestra and soloists.

Qualification for Membership

We are only accepting singers who are up to date with the most recently available Covid booster and can show proof of their status along with a photo ID. Masking is optional. High quality masks (N95, KN95 or KF94) are recommended. These precautions are meant solely to protect the health of all chorale members and our audiences.

(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.”

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

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

See for yourself the energy, talent, and dedication of Heritage Chorale singers, our inspired music director, and expert accompanist. We admit members through auditions scheduled following open rehearsals.
