The House of Hope Choir School

Make a Joyful Noise! Celebrating 40 Years of HOH Choir School!


The House of Hope Choir School offers well-rounded music education to all children ages 4-18. For 40 years, The Choir School has inspired young singers to learn, grow, and have fun!

Choristers sing high-quality sacred repertoire, learn the fundamentals of music through Orff and voice classes, and come together in an enthusiastic and encouraging community.

The House of Hope Choir School has toured regionally and internationally, including Canada, Norway, Denmark, Puerto Rico, England, Germany, and most recently Latvia. The Choir has also produced a number of recordings available in the church office.
