Hopewell Valley Chorus Scholarship

At our spring concert, HVC annually awards its $1,000 scholarship to a musically talented graduating senior who resides in the Hopewell Valley.

In addition, the Scholarship Committee voted to award an honorable mention to percussionist Gian Lombardo, HVCHS ’17, (at right) who performed two pieces with the chorus at the concert.

Spring into Song

DSC_0896The Hopewell Valley Chorus annually presents Spring into Song, a free concert with performances by vocal groups based in–or with close ties to–the Hopewell Valley. After 13 years, the event outgrew the sanctuary at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Washington Crossing. It is now generously hosted by Central Church, in Ewing.

Since 2003, Spring into Song has raised more than $50,000 in donations and, to date, has sponsored camperships for 65 Trenton Children’s Chorus singers’, who took part in leading summer music programs, including Camp Albemarle and the Middle School Summer Vocal Institute at Westminster Choir College of Rider University.

Outreach Singing

The Hopewell Valley Chorus also volunteers at local assisted living and retirement groups. Since 2016, we have entertained the residents of The Memory Care Unit in Princeton Junction with monthly Saturday-morning sing-alongs.
