The Heritage Singers of Jacksonville is a nonprofit organization of gifted singers who are dedicated to experiencing and fostering a sense of community through the preparation and performance of high quality choral music.
Their website quotes as their goal “to be of the people, by the people, and for the people” pointing at the guiding word in the name being: Heritage.

The selection of repertoire is fresh and reflective of the members’ common and individual heritages. The choir was founded in Jacksonville in early 2010 but you might not always recognize their music. And that’s by design.

“We like to focus on relatively unfamiliar and new choral works, which perhaps distinguishes us from some other groups,” said Michael Dell, founding artistic director.

Their repertoire is divided between a cappella and piano-accompanied pieces, both secular and sacred, Dell said.

The Heritage Singers’ 35 members come from Mandarin, Southside, Arlington, the Beaches, Avondale, Riverside and Arlington and come from all walks of life: business owners, interior designers, teachers and music

directors, system designers and mechanical engineers, professional and amateur singers, church workers, active
workers and retired workers, students, health professionals, lawyers, women and men, young and younger.  Their love of singing is the building block under their success.
