Under the direction of Artistic Director Eric R. Riley since 2012, the Wheatland Chorale is widely regarded as one of the premiere choral ensembles in Pennsylvania. The singers, all volunteers, are selected through audition and travel from throughout Southeastern Pennsylvania for rehearsals in Lancaster. The Chorale is named after the Wheatland Hills neighborhood where founding director Robert J. Upton lived in Lancaster at the time the group was formed.
The choir’s repertoire is very broad, and it features selections from all periods. The group has also commissioned several works. The first commission, ‘Child of Our Time’, renamed ‘The Stolen Child’, by composer Scott Robinson, premiered in 1992. A recording of that performance was broadcast twice on ‘The First Art’.
The Wheatland Chorale regularly performs for audiences in Lancaster, Wyomissing, and York. Please consider joining us at our next performance!
