Choir School

Since 1982, House of Hope Choir School has offered excellence in music education to children. Under the direction of Choir School Director Sofia Ardalan, choristers learn to express themselves through music, sing high-quality repertoire, and grow in friendship and faith. Choristers sing weekly during the worship service.

Upon entering Choir School, choristers embark on a rigorous course of musical study. They are held to high musical standards and are exposed to challenging repertoire. But Choir School teaches much more. Choristers learn about commitment, perseverance, and teamwork—skills that will benefit them throughout their lives. Choir School is open to all children ages 4-18; no previous musical training is required.

House of Hope Choir School has toured regionally and internationally, including Canada, Norway, Denmark, Puerto Rico, England, and Germany. It has also produced a number of recordings, the most recent is “Sing for Joy!” This CD features anthem favorites The Lord Bless You and Keep You by John Rutter, The Father’s Love by Simon Lole, and many more.

House of Hope Choir School Tour: Latvia, June 2019

The House of Hope Choir School has a long history of touring, both nationally and internationally. Previous trips include Norway and Denmark, Puerto Rico, England, and Germany. This June, choristers from the HOH Choir School will be traveling to Latvia, to share their love of Christ through music, visit the ancient places and modern cities that make this Baltic country unique, and experience the beauty of Latvia, where singing is a vital part of their cultural expression. The tour will include stays in the cities of Riga, Kuldiga, and Aispute, and incorporate opportunities to visit both urban and rural areas. Choristers will sing worship services and concerts at Aizpute Lutheran Church, the Church of St. Saviour, and St. Magdalena’s Church in Riga. This wonderful opportunity will be led by Choir School Director Sofia Ardalan and HOH member Cindy Beilke, owner of Baltics and Beyond Travel. For more information, or to help support this amazing opportunity for our young singers, contact Sofia Ardalan at SofiaA@hohchurch.org.
