   Valencia H.S. Choirs

Vocal / Choral Director: Christine Tavares-Mocha 

Choir Council welcomes you to the 2018-2019 season of Valencia Choirs!

Dear Parent:

Welcome to the Valencia High School Choir family! My name is Christine Tavares-Mocha and I am the choral director at Valencia High School. We are very happy to have you and your child involved in the choir. This year promises to be exciting and rewarding! Many benefits will come from the experience that your child will obtain from being in choir. This year we plan on attending many festivals in California and a tour to Greece & Italy including singing in St. Peter's Basilica!!.  Last year we went to New York and sang at Carnegie Hall.  We've toured Paris, Munich, Austria, and Vienna singing throughout Europe. 

The choral music program offers something for everyone! Music is one of the “multiple intelligences” that contributes to the development of each person. Music not only enriches a student’s life, but helps them learn in other areas of education and development. Performing helps students build their confidence, discipline, and self-esteem. Students also learn to work together through team-work and depending on each other. Many life long friendships are built in choir. More importantly, music is an outlet for enjoyment, creativity, and growing! It is my hope that when students look back at their time in the Valencia High School Choirs, they will realize that it wasn’t just about making music; It was about making and enriching one’s life.

On the FORMS & CHOIR pages, you will find course outlines for each of the choral groups. In addition, the choral calendar is includes all upcoming dates (please note that dates will be added for festivals and other community performances as they become available).  Please look around the website for choir program information including choral awards, officers, the choral contract, and behavior policies. Please make sure that all forms are read, filled out, and turned in by Tuesday, August 21st.

I am excited and look forward to working with you and your child. I hope many of you become involved in our “Choral Parents Association” (CPA). Please see our CPA page for more information and continue to visit the website throughout the year for volunteer opportunities.  If you ever have any questions, I am only a phone call or email away. Please do not hesitate to call me at school. My extension is 526 and I will answer phone calls from 8:15am-9am every morning. Email, however, is the quickest and easiest way to contact mecmocha@hartdistrict.org

In Harmony,

Mrs. Christine Tavares-Mocha

 

Ensembles:  Mixed Choir, Advanced Women’s Vocal Ensemble, Advanced Concert Choir, Men’s Choir, Advanced Vocal Jazz Ensemble "Soundwaves", Advanced Vocal Jazz Ensemble “Two N’ Four” 

How do I sign up for choir? 
Email Mrs. Tavares-Mocha at cmocha@hartdistrict.org 

Is it possible to take choir all four years? Yes. It is also possible to be on a team sport or extra-curricular activity. Co-curricular students excel in choir as long as they email their schedule in advance. Please email cmocha@hartdistrict.org for more information.
