Vocal / Choral Director: Christine Tavares-Mocha  

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. We are currently planning our festivals and tours for the 2020-2021 school year.  In the past we have toured Greece & Italy including singing in St. Peter's Basilica, New York including performing at Carnegie Hall, 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. Y

You can find course outlines for each of the choral groups on our google classroom, please contact me at cmocha@hartdistrict.org for access. In addition, the choral calendar 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 choirs, choir council, and CPA.  You can see all classroom information like our choral contract and behavior policies on google classroom. 

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 me; cmocha@hartdistrict.org

In Harmony, 
Mrs. Christine Tavares-Mocha

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.
