• 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!

You can contact us any time to let us know of your interest. There are many opportunities for fun, such as group retreats and outings Choral Directors Mary Kay Babcock and Lindsey Pounders are the BEST – ask any choir member – you’ll have a blast and learn a ton. Premiere and Encore choir rehearsals take place on Wednesdays after school at Century High School.

You might wonder what it is like to audition! Most auditions will last less than 10 minutes. You will be asked to demonstrate your lowest useful note and your highest useful note via simple fun vocal exercises, you will sing back three note phrases to test your ability to retain pitch. Lastly, you’ll be invited to sing a familiar song in your range.

Note: Auditions are not required for the Prelude Choir (grades K – 4). Prelude choir rehearsals take place after school on Mondays at Century High School.
