Region – The Heritage Chorale of the Metrowest area is seeking singers, high school age and older, for its new season, featuring some changes in its schedule and an unusual collaboration with a Bluegrass band.

In December the chorus, under the direction of John Finney, will present a family concert of popular Christmas and other seasonal music, complete with sing-a-longs at St. Mark's School in Southborough.

In May of 2015, the chorale has contracted with the nationally acclaimed group Monroe Crossing for a performance of American folk songs, spirituals and Bluegrass instrumentals, along with a Bluegrass Mass. “The World Beloved” (composed for Monroe Crossing) shows how well a classical choral sound and a sparkling Bluegrass accompaniment can complement each other. This performance will be in Wellesley.

To end the season, also at St. Mark's, the group is planning a May Pops Concert of songs that have won Oscar, Tony and Grammy awards, including such blockbusters as Broadway's “The Lion King,” “Jersey Boys,” and Disney's “Frozen.”

Any singers interested in joining Heritage Chorale for this season should attend one of the open rehearsals Tuesdays, Sept. 2 or 9, at 7:30 p.m., at the First Parrish Universalist Church, 24 Vernon St., in Framingham Center. Visit heritagechorale.org or call 508-270-3999 for more information.
