• The UTES General Music Choir is available to all students in the 4th & 5th grade students. Students are exposed to traditional choral genres from classical, musical theater, jazz, rapping, show choir, and gospel scores. Choral elements include harmony, blending, balancing, blocking, pitch percussion, and beat boxing.

    Students will be preparing for a 2020 Spring Concert performance. All are welcome and no auditions are required. Rehearsals are held on Tuesdays from 3:40-4:25 pm. Students are offered the late bus or parent pick-up after rehearsals. Scheduling conflicts arise, yet please attend each grade levels designated rehearsal date as each grade will be working on separate material for their Spring Choir Concert in 2020. 

    If you are interested in joining, please send me an email so you can join our UTES Google Classroom Choir page for weekly updates and announcements. (aristizabal@upperschools.org).

Hello! It is my pleasure and honor to be the Upper Township Middle School General Music Teacher and Choral Director of both the UTMS and UTES. For over 15 years, I have been teaching music education, and this is my fourth year directing the UTES Choir for the Upper Township School District. My goal is to inspire students to have a life-long relationship with music and my commitment is to the improvement of the student. These students are my dream come true! Thank you!
