As a professor at a land-grant university, outreach is an essential component of Dr. Hoch’s academic portfolio. He routinely and actively engages the local, state, regional, and national communities as a performer, educator, conductor, and scholar. He believes that outreach and community engagement through music is at the heart of the musician’s mission.

His service to several national singing organizations, such as the National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS) and the New York Singing Teachers Association (NYSTA) serves as university outreach to the national academic and professional voice pedagogy community. Dr. Hoch also performs in a variety of national and regional venues as a soloist and chamber musician. As a frequent master class clinician, he regularly gives master class and lectures at national universities, regional institutions, community colleges, and high schools.

In addition to his national and regional endeavors, Dr. Hoch is committed to engaging his local community as well. His professional calendar regularly includes recitals in local venues—such as the Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art in Auburn—as well as clinics and workshops at local high schools. His work as Choirmaster and Minister of Music at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in Auburn also serves to engage and enrich the Auburn and Opelika communities.
