Maestro Randall Douglas Perry, artistic director, conducts and accompanies the chorale on the piano in a varied program of hymns and classical pieces written by the masters of the Baroque Period through modern times. Founded by Maestro Perry in 1984, an anniversary concert will be held on April 26, 2014 at 3 p.m. at St. Mark's Episcopal Church in historic Jim Thorpe. The chorale is always looking for additional voices. For further information, call (570) 325-4794, visit its facebook page or check the website at www.bhchorale.org.
