It is my pleasure to announce an opportunity for first graders through sixth graders to participate in a community choir directed by Susan & David Brown at Hope Baptist Church with the first practice scheduled for Sunday, August 20 from 5:15 to 6:15 p.m. Practices will continue through most Sundays and end on Sunday, December 10. There will be several special performances.

Both Susan and David are new to our community but not new to directing choirs for children. They have been responsible for many over the years and are pleased to be working with their second one in the Hope area to help children follow their musical dreams.

During my years of teaching at Hope Elementary, some of my best memories would have to be centered around helping students produce CDs. I have had the honor of being present at a lot of Hope Elementary programs involving all children singing songs where my whole being has been uplifted. Last year, I dropped in on one of the practices for the children's choir and was extremely impressed with the leadership abilities of the Browns! Below, you will find some of their many credentials:

About David Brown: Interim Pastor, Piano/Vocal Performer, Piano Tuner, Trumpet Performer in Columbus City Band, Choir Director for 30+ Years, Piano Player in Patsy Cline Musical at WILLow LeaVes, Leader of Hope Community Hymns of Hope

About Susan Brown: English As A Second Language Tutor/Teacher, Piano/Vocal Teacher & Performer, Children's Choir Director & 2 Musicals Yearly for 30+ Years, Leader of Hope Community Hymns of Hope
