We Share Music With the World
The mission of the Mapleton Chorale is to enrich our communities through the performance of outstanding choral music from all traditions; to ennoble our audiences with choral programs that elevate, educate and entertain; to excel in performance by embracing challenge, discovery and diversity; and to enthusiastically support and promote the performing arts in the Utah Valley region.
Mapleton Chorale is a service centered organization that provides free concerts in order for quality music to be accessible to all people. Since its formation in 1994, the Chorale has presented hundreds of concerts in the Utah Valley area and beyond. Our genre ranges from Renaissance to classical to modern, including both sacred and secular texts. We believe in music's ability to bring people together to share a common experience for good.
What People Are Saying
Having had many opportunities to hear this magnificent choir perform in different venues across the state of Utah, I have to say bravo to the Mapleton Choral. Their level of professionalism, unity of sound, and overall presentation take them to a realm that is like unto singing with angels.

For over twenty years I have never failed to be awed by a concert from the Mapleton Chorale. It feels as if you're floating a little higher than the earth when you're listening to them.
I was impressed and delighted by what I heard from this choir. Having belonged to several choirs myself, I always tend to judge harshly, but I was pleasantly surprised and quite enjoyed the experience.
Heather Christiansen is pleased to be the conductor of the Mapleton Chorale, beginning her term in Fall of 2019. Heather holds a Master's degree in Choral Conducting, as well as an undergraduate degree in Music Education (choral emphasis), both from Brigham Young University. She has had over 10 years experience teaching singing to those from elementary through university levels. One such experience was being a teacher in the Arts Bridge program, where Mrs. Christiansen taught children subjects such as social studies and science through the medium of music at Foxhollow Elementary. She has run her private piano and vocal studio in Utah Valley teaching over 200 students.
Heather firmly believes in the ability music has to bring people together and its power to enrich lives. She wishes the arts, and choral music in-particular, can be more easily reached by those in the community. Heather is honored to be working with the Mapleton Chorale, and is confident this is a venue that will bring choral music to the hearts of its listeners.
In her spare time, Heather enjoys decorating her house, planting gardens (in short, making things beautiful), and playing with her two adorable daughters and incredible husband, Matthew.
