About Voice House
VoiceHouse is literally a family. Fred and Becky Ritter were married in 1979 and began raising their 5 children, Jacob, Alexander, Celeste, David, and Brianna. Since then they have added Celeste’s husband Scott and two grandsons, Joshua and Harrison. Also in the family are Alex’s wife Maggie and Brianna’s husband, Aaron. This family is held together by their love of God and each other. As educators (Fred in music and Becky as an elementary teacher) it is no surprise that the children have chosen similar paths. Jacob, Celeste, and Brianna have degrees in music education and are teaching music in the public schools. Alex has a Music Business degree where he has developed technological skills in recording, sound reproduction and website management, and David who is a youth pastor in Minnesota and has also developed skills as a worship leader and worked in video production for his church. Each has countless hours of performing and directing music at almost every level.

Becky, Alex, and I had an absolute blast last Saturday Night at the Homecoming Dance for Elkhorn Mount Michael. The kids had so much fun dancing and singing along with most of the tunes. The sponsor said: “VoiceHouse dj’d our homecoming dance last night. Despite it being incredibly hot they keep the dance floor packed[…]
I had a most amazing day today working with the North Star Choreographed Choir and the Concert Choir and Kirk Brown, their director. The “choreographed choir” was working on Zegree’s “Blue Skies” which of course is right up my alley. Worked on some swing style techniques and on how to take the fear out of[…]
Music for reception and then full dance floor all night! So much fun. Thanks Brianna for a great playlist!
An honor to represent Columbus for the Nebraska 150 Whistle Stop train that came through Columbus Friday with Governor Ricketts, astronaut Clayton Anderson, and Tom Osborne on board. We ran sound, M.C.’ed the event, and sang for the 1/2 hour prior to the trains arrival. VoiceHouse at Nebraska Whistle Stop 150

I was given the distinct honor of conducting the attendees at the Nebraska Choral Directors Association Summer convention. This is Z. Randall Stroope’s Dona Nobis Pacem, an amazing piece that they sang with such passion. Amazing moment for me.
