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 for more information.

Important info about VHS Choir

  1. Show Choir counts as PE Credit. All other choirs count as Fine Arts A-G credit. 
  2. Except for the dress rehearsal before a show, we do not hold practices after school; instead we practice within our class period. 
  3. We work hard to create a space where students can participate in multiple activities on campus. Our students are actively in Varsity and JV Cheer, Dance Team, Theater, Basketball, Volleyball, Wrestling, ASB, MSA, Swim, Track, Jazz Band, and more. If you are in band, sports, ASB, Drama, etc., you can also be in Choir without a conflict. In fact, we ENCOURAGE IT – it will make you a better performer!
  4. Our calendar is given at the beginning of the year for planning purposes.
  5. We do outreach performances through our district schools, city, country, and even internationally. (Students in choir receive community service hours for extra performances.)
  6. 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.
  7. Participation in choir costs less than any other extra-curricular activity at VHS.
  8. 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, Norte Dame Cathedral in Paris and St. Peter's Cathedral.
We pride ourselves in having a VERY DIVERSE student body as music connects us all.

If you love music and being a part of a team, we want you.

Come join our almost 150-member choir family, travel and tour the world, and help us live up to our mission statement of "Inspire, Uplift, and Cultivate Community".

2024-2025 Tours: San Luis Obispo, San Diego, Disneyland, Redlands, and JAPAN (Summer 2025)
