Music Program

Hope Middle School Music Programs

Did you know Hope Middle School currently offers Band, Chorus, and String Orchestra as an Encore elective for our students?  These ensembles have long-standing traditions of excellence including giving concerts at school and around Pitt County as well as traveling for culturally enriching trips to competitions and workshops held at Busch Gardens and Disney World. We hope you would consider being a part of our journey together! 

Normally, you would need to join these ensembles during sixth grade to participate. Due to the previous Covid school year, we are opening registration up to any interested rising seventh grader. You do not need any prior music experience to participate! If you are already enrolled in one of these groups, you cannot join another as per Pitt County Policy.  Although our classes are optional we hope that many more would consider joining our positive and rewarding programs. 

If you are a rising 6th or 7th grader interested in Chorus, please contact Mr. Paul Flowers by email at If you are interested in Band or String Orchestra, please contact Ms. Theresa O’Deens by email at  

To support our scheduling team, we prefer to hear from you by June 25th if you would like to participate in any of these programs, but no later than August 16th at Open House.  We hope to see you in classrooms in August!
