Performing Arts Series

Celebrating 20 years of the Hill College Performing Arts Series

In the 1993-94 academic year the Hill College Performing Arts Series presented its first season of concerts on the Hillsboro campus. The series began with the help of Dr. William Auvenshine and the initial seed money from Hill College as well as help from Scotty Cason in enlisting community leader support. From the beginning it was decided that the series would be free to the public and that donations from the public and financial help from Hill College would be our only means of support. From a very modest initial budget of $2,000, support, both financial and in attendance, has grown tenfold in the past twenty years.

The Performing Arts Series presents four to six programs per year to students, faculty, staff and the community.  These free-admission programs bring outstanding performing artists of all genres to Hillsboro each year and, in addition to the concerts, allows for those in attendance to interact with the artists in the receptions which follow each event.

Vienna Boys Choir

Boys have been singing at the court of the Holy Roman Emperor since the early 15th century. In 1498, more than half a millennium ago, Emperor Maximilian I moved his court and his court musicians to Vienna. In 1498 Vienna Hofmusikkapelle was founded and in consequence the Vienna Boys Choir. Until 1918, the choir sang exclusively for the imperial court, at mass, at private concerts and functions, and on state occasions.
