Hilliard Arts Council Youth & Community Chorus
Many of us have enjoyed the experience of singing in a choir. After all, communal singing has also been shown to improve our sense of happiness and wellbeing. This is why we provide choral opportunities to the Hilliard community, both for children and adults.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to COVID-19 our choral music activities have been suspended temporarily. We hope to be able to resume in some fashion in the fall of 2021. Stay tuned to this space for further news as it develops.
Hilliard Community Chorus
The Hilliard Community Chorus is a non-auditioned chorus of singers open to anyone high school aged and older. The chorus performs at least two concerts per year, one of which is our annual performance of Handel’s Messiah, a Hilliard tradition going back over 40 years.
The choir is directed by Logan Fletcher, a music teacher at Hilliard Crossing Elementary School and a graduate of the Conservatory of Music at Capital University. Logan brings a high level of energy to rehearsals where his passion for choral music is infectious with all participants.
There is an annual participation fee of $20 for this choir. The chorus rehearses weekly on Sunday afternoons beginning in the fall and then again in the spring. The chorus performs two concerts a year at St. John Lutheran Church located at 6135 Rings Road. You do not need to be a Hilliard resident to join, just love to sing! Come join us and bring a friend!
Hilliard Youth Chorus
Our latest addition to our choral music program, the Hilliard Youth Chorus is a non-auditioned chorus of singers open to all singers in grades 3-8 who want to have fun, make new friends, and sing beautiful music. No prior singing experience is necessary. The goal of the Hilliard Youth Chorus is to help kids develop good singing technique, expose them to new songs and musical styles, and empower them to find their voices through music!
The choir is directed by Kristin Hodgson who brings a wealth of music education experience through her many years as a choral educator in a number of different schools and settings with the Hilliard City Schools. Kristin has a degree in music education from West Virginia University and has been involved in various Hilliard Arts Council activities over the years.
There is an annual participation fee of $50 for this choir. Rehearsals are weekly beginning in the fall and then again in the spring on Wednesdays from 4:30 to 5:30 PM at the Hilliard Civic and Cultural Arts Center.
