Heritage singers

Postby Tygosar В» 06.08.2019

.

Founded in by Max and Lucy Mace, the Heritage Singers, a pioneering self-supporting Seventh-day Adventist gospel music ensemble and now the longest running group of its type, has flourished for four continuous decades.

It has traveled to more than sixty countries, performed in every state in the U. After conducting and singing in the group for four years and observing the effect its music had on its audiences, particularly the young, he and his wife, Lucy, also an employee, decided to leave their jobs at UML and launch a full-time performing group.

By fall , he had formed a group of eight singers and accompanying instrumentalists, chosen a name, scheduled some performances, and started to travel. From the start, they met with success and numerous invitations to appear at churches, schools, church meetings, and conventions.

They also made a number of successful records, which were then distributed by Chapel Records. At the time of their 25 th anniversary, they had started to reissue older LP recordings in two-CD sets, a 25 th anniversary project that when completed included ten sets. F rom the first, when Max, Lucy, and those members of the Rose City Singers gave advance notice to the president of United Medical Labs about their plans to form their group and then were peremptorily fired, there were challenges.

In the three-month interim between their release and their first tour in June, the Maces, who had two children in church school and pressing financial commitments and needs, were without an income.

They used that three months to get organized and to give a few practice concerts in the Portland area. Local churches lent their support, admiring the Maces and members of the group for what they were undertaking.

Lucy later described the first of what through the years would be several providential miracles:. The day we walked out of our house for our first trip to board a rental bus, because the bus we had purchased had not been delivered on time, I thought, "I think I will go and just check the mailbox one last time.

They wrote that they had been impressed to help us and had enclosed a check. It was the exact amount of money needed to pay for that rental bus. T hey were flooded with more requests for concerts than they could fill. Young people in particular were moved by what they heard. Large numbers came forward near the end of concerts in response to an invitation to have a member of the group pray with them, a tradition that continues.

They were not without their critics, including conservative church members and some classically trained musicians who decried what they felt was a lower class of sacred music. There were many members and trained musicians, however, who recognized the professionalism of the presentations, the integrity of the music, and its inspired lyrical quality and felt that the Heritage Singers were providing an important music ministry in the church. F or the first twenty years, all of the members were full-time paid singers.

The group kept an arduous eleven-month schedule with as many as six concerts a week in order to satisfy the requests for appearances. Two-week Christmas and mid-summer vacations, along with seasonal brief breaks to restock and make adjustments in traveling attire, gave the Maces and the performers the respite they needed. Even with this full schedule, it became necessary in to add a second group, Heritage Singers II, to meet the invitations.

For five years both groups responded to what seemed an insatiable hunger on the part of schools and churches for the type of programming they provided. When Max formed the second group, he wanted it to be a mirror image of the original, performing the same repertoire and singing in the same style and with the same unique harmony associated with the first group.

Leaders of group II, however, drifted away from that ideal, and eventually the second group disbanded, with some of its singers joining the first group. In the early years, many members were college-age students who would sing one or two years before returning to school to continue their education.

In the last two decades, with a reduction in the schedule to mostly weekend tours, Mace has been able to retain singers for several years by drawing today's seven-member ensemble from a pool of about a dozen experienced singers, all of whom have other jobs. Max, his daughter, Val, and son, Greg, who is the sound engineer, take all of the trips and provide a stable base.

F rom the first, Mace family members participated in the group and provided technical assistance. Lucy, who had been an alto in the Rose City Singers, encouraged Max in his dream to form an independent ensemble and then became a member in that first group of eight, along with Max, a baritone who on occasion would sing second tenor.

After singing with the group for ten years, during which time she was known as "Mom" to its members, she injured her legs in an accident in the s and was unable to walk for three months. Although she eventually healed, during the time of convalescence, Lucy assumed direction of a television series they were starting and led out in that activity for over ten years and programs.

Because of these responsibilities and others, she no longer sang with the group. Son Greg began running the soundboard at age eleven, when the group started, and has continued in that capacity ever since. Drawing on that experience, he formed a sound company, which he owns and operates between tours. Daughter Val began traveling with them on tours at age nine and became a member of the group at age eleven.

Her distinctive soprano voice has become the basis for what is known as the "Heritage sound. Both she and Greg married persons who are also part of the group. Greg met his wife, Adrianne, during a tour in Brazil. She had grown up in a family where music was important and, before meeting the Maces during that tour, had been in several gospel groups in her country.

Two months after the tour, she traveled to the U. Val's husband, Art Mapa, a native of the Philippines, is a gifted guitarist, arranger, producer, talented recording technician, and videographer who has been with the group since He operates the Turning Point Studio, part of the Heritage Singers operation, where he creates accompaniments for the ensemble and produces CDs, videos, and DVDs of the group and its singers.

L ike Art and Adrianne, singers in the pool from which the rest of the Heritage Singers are drawn are a cosmopolitan group, coming from Australia, Canada, and Chile, as well as the U. Even though the Maces are Seventh-day Adventists and the Heritage Singers are often identified with that church in the minds of its members, from the beginning it has been an independent ministry.

Accordingly, a few of its singers are committed Christians from other faiths. Many of its singers have been in the HS a minimum of ten years, several having sung longer than that.

David Bell, an accomplished basso profondo who has been with them for 26 years, has one of the longest tenures for a non-family member. He started singing in the group at age nineteen, dropping out of his studies at Walla Walla College, now University, at the beginning of his sophomore year.

Known for his singing with the Messengers Quartet, a group that traveled extensively throughout the Northwest on promotional trips for the college, he responded quickly to an invitation from the Maces to audition and then sing with their group.

Bell joined at a time when the group was constantly on the road and put his education on hold for two years. He returned to WWC in , completing a degree in electrical engineering three years later. Throughout those years he also continued to sing with the Heritage Singers when possible and continued to do so while completing a Ph. In a recent article about him he observed, "One of my real joys in life is to sing.

It can reach people in ways preaching can't. Really making those connections is the most special part to me. C oncerts have through the years been influenced to some extent by the evolving tastes of Heritage Singer audiences. While choices of music and the accompaniments have reflected these changes, their repertoire is for the most part traditional gospel music with a small amount of conservative contemporary Christian music, along with music for the children who attend.

In its first years, accompaniments were provided by members of the group who were also instrumentalists and others who traveled with the singers. Today's accompaniments are all prerecorded except for special event concerts and some appearances.

Starting in its second year the group was doubled in size to provide a fuller and richer sound. Singers along with accompanists and support staff meant that as many as nineteen people were at times on the road. When, because of advances in sound technology, the same breadth of sound could be achieved with fewer singers, the group returned to its original size.

While the smaller group facilitated travel arrangements, it also reduced expenses. Over musicians have been part of the Heritage Singers in its nearly four decades of existence.

F rom the beginning, the group has traveled abroad. On two of those trips, taken in one year with a short break between, they literally circled the globe. Beginning in the early s , with the decision to reduce performances in the U. They have traveled and performed in over sixty countries. One of the most memorable trips was to Romania, where audiences who had listened to them on smuggled-in tapes during the years when the country was part of the Soviet Union shared with them how important their music had been to them during those troubled times.

This past year's travel included concerts in the Philippines and in the Czech and Slovak Republics. F inances have been an ongoing challenge. In the beginning when they were constantly on the road, offerings, along with sales of records and later CDs, covered ongoing expenses.

In their first three years they were able to pay off all expenses associated with starting the group, including purchase of a bus.

More recently, however, offerings average only about a dollar per each person in the audience, the same as when they started in , even though travel expenses have significantly increased.

Additionally, churches in some regions of the country now charge the group when hosting them for a concert. The income from sales at concerts of CDs, DVDs, and tapes of the group and its singers, all of which are produced at their studio, has helped offset the decline in offering income and increase in expenses.

There were times during the years when cash flow was a problem and the Maces didn't cash their paychecks so that there would be enough to pay the singers.

Lucy recently recalled,. When we started the Spanish Heritage Singers, and the time came to do payroll, there wasn't enough money. I told Max, "We don't have money to pay their salaries this month. The lack of a predictable source of income has made this a faith ministry, sometimes a day by day operation in which God has provided in one way or another.

This group, known as their "Faith Partners," has proven to be an enormous help. Some in that original group have since increased their contribution to match the passage of years. These donors receive a monthly letter with photographs about activities and plans for the group and a free copy of each new CD. Overseas travel expense is underwritten by those who host them or by sponsors, many being Christian businessmen.

While few concerts in the U. The Heritage Singers also help groups by giving fundraising concerts for a fee with the understanding that proceeds above that amount will be retained by the hosts. B y the end of their second year, it had become obvious that the organization needed a base from which it could operate.

The Maces, who had been renting when the group started, were staying in friends' homes or in motels between tours and operating out of their business manager's garage. In , they and their business manager found and purchased a large acreage, previously the site of a working cattle ranch in Placerville, California. Construction of an 11, square foot lodge was started in that included a rehearsal area, offices, nine bedrooms with shared baths, and two one-bedroom apartments for Max and Lucy and the business manager and his wife.

A recording studio was added later. Although the facility, which has become known as "The Ranch," was not finished by Christmas , the Maces, tired of sleeping in motels, moved into their apartment, which had just been sheetrocked to provide privacy, for the holiday. Members of the group, wanting to be the first to also sleep at "The Ranch," joined them, even though it meant they had to sleep in their sleeping bags on the first floor, which was totally open and strewn about with building materials.

Five years after the purchase of the land, when the business manager and the Maces dissolved their business relationship, the Maces retained the facility and 35 acres. More than former and current singers gathered for this gala event.
