Mr. Dees

Jared Dees is enthusiastic for his first year as Choir Director at Ronald Thornton MS! 


Mr. Dees graduated from the University of Houston in May 2019 with a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance. Go Coogs!  While at UH, Mr. Dees performed in many ensembles, including the prestigious, award-winning Moores School Concert Chorale, where he was Tenor Section Leader.  With this group, Mr. Dees was blessed with the opportunity to travel nationally and internationally competiting and winning competitions.  Mr. Dees also performed in over 10 productions with the Moores Opera Center, where he premiered a role in Nelson's The School for Scandal.


In his personal time, he enjoys hiking and cooking! He even oil paints from time to time. As a native San-Antonioan, he is, of course, a Spurs fan! (But will support the Rockets when they are not playing his team!)
