Andrew Trites, Choral Director
Mr. Trites is excited to return for his third year at HB du Pont Middle School. Before joining the Warrior Family, he taught for six years in Texas in the Dallas and Houston areas. Mr. Trites holds degrees from the University of Kansas in Lawrence, KS (Bachelor of Music Education) and Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, TX (Master of Music in Choral Conducting). Choirs under his direction have achieved success in concert, festival, and contest, including the Delaware Choral Festival, High Note Music Festival, and the UIL Concert & Sight-Reading Contest. Mr. Trites is very excited to be welcoming Wee Baby Trites to the world with his wife in November! In addition to choir and teaching, he loves music theatre, classic rock, and rooting for his Hometown Kansas City Royals and Chiefs. This summer, he will be presenting repertoire reading sessions in Delaware and Virginia for ACDA events. Mr. Trites also enjoys travel; recent visits include Austria, Budapest, Kansas, the Outer Banks, and Hawaii.
