Heritage Chorale in concert at Church of the Saviour
Arts in the Cathedral announces that the Heritage Chorale will appear in concert on Sunday, Feb. 21, 3 p.m., at Church of the Saviour (2537 Lee Road in Cleveland Heights). This concert, part of the church’s celebration of Black History Month, is free and open to the public. A free-will offering will be accepted to benefit the Heritage Chorale.
The Heritage Chorale was founded by the late Sylvia L. Perry in 2002. Since then, the group has followed a mission of bringing sacred music, especially Negro Spiritual and Gospel music, to audiences locally and internationally. Besides performing throughout Ohio, the group has appeared in Vienna, Rome (including at St. Peter’s Basilica), and Florence, Venice and Varese, Italy.
Now in its 14th season, the 40-member ensemble represents seven denominations and its members bring diverse backgrounds, professions and experiences as they come together to share their love of music. The Rev. William A. Brewer, artistic director, is the pastor of Mt. Pleasant United Methodist Church in Cleveland. He brings a combination of talent and experience to the group, and has degrees in musicology, liturgical arts and divinity. He has studied classical piano, voice and conducting, and also plays several wind instruments.
