Rachel Moes is a well-rounded performer and educator who aims to make human connections to promote empathy and equality in her corner of the world.
Rachel's singing journey began at 6 years old, when she joined the Sunshine Singers at her home church in Denver, Colorado. She has fond memories of imitating the vibrato of the older church singers and listening to the Hallelujah Chorus with awe. That early interest in choral music ultimately led her towards a career in music. She currently performs with the UNT A Capella Choir (directed by Dr. Allen Hightower), and as a soloist with the Denton Bach Society.
Rachel started learning piano at age 3 from her mom, an accomplished pianist, and she feels comfortable at the keyboard. She thoroughly enjoyed being part of her middle and high school orchestras, and continues to play and teach violin. In high school, Rachel was also part of the theater program and multiple choirs. She studied jazz voice and participated in All-State Jazz ensembles led by Dr. Kate Reid (University of Miami) and Cedric Dent of Take 6.
Rachel brings her well-rounded performance background and relies on her knowledge of pedagogy, technique, and humanity to reach her students. She believes that emotional connection should be at the heart of every musical experience. Rachel is currently in her third year at the UNT College of Music, where she is pursuing a double major in vocal performance and choral music education.
