Originally founded as the Andulhea Heritage Chorus, Blue Mountain Heritage Chorus (BMHC) consists of neighbors, friends and people from all areas of Berks County. Our chorus is a true ecumenical group made up of members from local Churches of all denominations including choir directors, organists, musicians, and vocalists who love to sing and share their voices with the community.
Preservation of our local culture was a central theme in the founding of our chorus which aims to preserve history and culture by performing the songs of the past. Over our ten (10) years of existence, we continue to remain true to our mission of preserving and performing the deep musical heritage and history of Berks county.
Since the birth of our chorus, which began as an idea spawned by the enthusiasm of a few volunteers, BMHC has thrived and grown to a vibrant choral organization of over sixty (60) members who share their time, talent and treasure. Our season generally starts in late May or early June with our main concert in September. We perform at Cabela’s for Memorial Day and Independence Day and various Church and civic organizations and, for those who can join us, we continue in the month of December for the Christmas Season.
No auditions or formal musical training is required to become a member. The only prerequisite is a love of music and a commitment to attend rehearsals. All are welcome! For additional information contact Carol A. Kissinger at 610-488-7791.
