The stage is set for Elizabethtown College and the Wheatland Chorale to make beauti-ful music together through a new partner-ship announced in the spring. The College and the Wheatland Chorale signed a “Letter of Mutual Understanding” to recognize the Chorale as a resident artistic organization, effective July 1, 2011.

Partnering with Elizabethtown, the Chorale hopes to present performances each year in the Leffler Chapel and Performance Center, plans to further enhance its artis-tic quality, increase its performances and geographic reach and build on its reputa-tion toward becoming the premier choral ensemble of this region.

In turn, the College will provide space for the Chorale’s office and music library, will support the music organization’s operat-ing budget and will provide professional fundraising and marketing counsel.

“I am delighted that the Wheatland Chorale has chosen Elizabethtown Col-lege to be its home,” said Carl Strikwerda, president of the College. “We look forward to many years of creative partnership to showcase great choral music in this region.” Established in 1987, the Wheatland Chorale maintains a reputation as one of Pennsylvania’s premier choral ensembles, reaping the talents of volunteer performers from Lancaster and Berks counties. “The Wheatland Chorale is pleased and excited to be joining with Elizabethtown College in a continuing commitment to provide great choral music to the region,” said Wheatland Board Chair Stephen Welz. “We are grateful for the opportunity to partner with an insti-tution of such high caliber and reputation.”
