A life-long love of music is one of the most important legacies we can give our children.

That's we why founded the Hillsboro Community Youth Choir: to teach, educate, and perform choral music of all kinds. Our four choirs start as young as kindergarten, and our oldest singers are seniors in high school.

Best of all, our singers truly build a sense of community with each other as well as with our directors. And, we have a lot of fun in the process!

Our Choirs


What is the Hillsboro Community Youth Choir?

Proudly serving the population of Washington County, the Hillsboro Community Youth Choir (HCYC) is made up of three choirs of young singers from grades 1 – 12.

Our two auditioned choirs include Premiere for grades 5 – 8, and Encore for grades 9 – 12.

We also offer a non-auditioned Prelude choir for grades 1 – 4.

Upcoming Events


Celebrate with HCYC!

It’s our 10th Anniversary this fall! We are excited that the 2014-2015 season is our 10th in Hillsboro and we hope that you and all of our community in Hillsboro and western Washington County will help us to celebrate with lots of good fun and energy!

If you are a young singer in Banks, North Plains, Forest Grove, Cornelius or Hillsboro, why not join us as we prepare and present three amazing public concerts in December, February and May.

Along the way there will be other opportunities for fun, such as group retreats and outings and singing at Hillsboro’s Holly Days celebration and more! Choral Directors Cindy Uecker and Lindsey Pounders are the BEST – ask any choir member – you’ll have a blast and learn a ton.
