Remembering Teresa Moura
From Lee Carpenter (CCGC Board President) ---------- It’s with deep sadness that I share with you the passing of Teresa Bird Moura.
Having known and worked with Teresa and her family for over 30 years, it’s been extremely difficult to put together these words.
Teresa literally grew up in the CCGC having been a member of the Dublin High Color Guard for four years.
She was an outstanding student and performance, winning 3 circuit titles and a WGI bronze medal while at Dublin. She travelled with Dublin High to Ireland, Dayton, Buffalo and through-out California.
After graduation she became the lead instructor for the Dublin High Guard and won two more circuit titles. After 40 years of being a Color Guard Director, The Amadeus Show she created is still my favorite show.
She went on to work with several other CCGC units while also being a member of the Star of Indiana drum corps, where she earned a DCI Gold Medal.
Teresa then met the love of her life Chris Moura. The two quickly became the creative force we know as Oak Grove High School. Together, they directed some of the top performance groups in the state in marching band, winter guard, percussion ensemble and symphonic band.
Chris and Teresa have two children, Tyler and Madison, who we also got to watch growing up in the CCGC. Both are not only incredible performers but loving, caring, amazing young people that any and all parents would be proud of.
She excelled at all she did; student, instructor, director, mentor, colleague, wife, mother and friend. We will all extremely miss her.
