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!
