The Heritage Chorale of Lancaster — a not-for-profit educational organization — strives to inspire our listeners to a renewed appreciation of the rich and varied choral legacy that has been an integral part of our heritage.

Bruton Parish, Colonial Williamsburg, Spring 2007

We present two distinct concert programs in various venues every spring and Christmas. Concerts are performed in churches throughout South Central Pennsylvania and have included noteworthy locations such as the Washington National Cathedral, Longwood Gardens, and Bruton Parish Church in Colonial Williamsburg. Each concert is about one hour long with a brief intermission.

Mount Calvary Lutheran Church in Neffsville, Pennsylvania, located five miles north of Lancaster, is the Chorale's home.

Longwood Gardens, Christmas 2007

Founded in 1994 and reorganized in 2001 as a state-chartered not-for-profit private independent educational organization, the Heritage Chorale relies on the financial support of patrons who share the Chorale's passion for choral music. The Chorale's singers give generously of their time and talents in their quest to continue the heritage of fine music and to enrich the culture and life of the Lancaster area.

Artistic Director Barry L. Sawyer has had a varied musical career as soloist and cantor, director and organizer of various musical events. He has studied performance and direction in Germany and the US and over the years has served as choir director in numerous churches throughout Lancaster County.

His previous positions include: Choirmaster at Emmanuel Lutheran Church and Grace Lutheran Church in Lancaster, Senior Choir Director at the Lititz Moravian Congregation, Director of the Ephrata Cloister Chorus, and Director of Music at the Evangelical Lutheran Church of the Redeemer in Lancaster.
