Top five facts about VHS Choir!

1. There are no rehearsals after school except for the dress rehearsal before a show.

2. Students who are in band, sports, ASB., or Drama can be in Choir without a conflict. In fact, we ENCOURAGE IT – it will make you a better performer!

3. Choir puts on many fundraisers a year to earn money for tour. One fundraiser, the annual school Swing Dance has Choir students singing Jazz solos backed up by a live combo.

4. Participation in choir costs less than any other extra-curricular activity at VHS.

5. Under the direction of Mrs. Christine Tavares-Mocha, the VHS Choirs have performed in the Walt Disney Hall, Carnegie Hall, Hawaii, Fullerton Jazz Festival, Reno Jazz Festival, UNC Jazz Festival, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo Performing Arts Center, Disney's Candlelight Processional, and in Summer of 2016 will perform mass at Norte Dame Cathedral in Paris.
