The Heritage Signature Chorale
While embracing a broad repertoire of choral music, The Heritage Signature Chorale is committed to preserving at the highest possible level the performance tradition of African-American music, especially the Negro Spiritual. The Chorale provides a venue for showcasing artists, composers and arrangers who share this commitment, thereby fostering community awareness and appreciation of an important historical legacy. The Chorale maintains an education component that targets youth, including mini-concerts, lectures, demonstrations, workshops and musical dramas. The chorale is proud to be a part of the dynamic choral community in the nation's capital.
The 2010-11 season included performances of the Verdi Requiem with the Alexandria Symphony Orchestra and The Metropolitan Chorus at the Rachel M. Schlesinger Concert Hall, an additional performance of the Verdi Requiem with the Prince Georges Philharmonic at the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center, and their annual season culminating concert at National City Christian Church, “11 Years in Retrospect…and the Voices Sing On!”
