Within a few hours of my arrival at the conference hotel, my personal energy enjoyed a lift. Connecting with choral colleagues from near and far, experiencing inspiration together through shared performances and interest sessions, having dialogue about ideas and successes – ACDA’s conferences provide essential growth opportunities!

The Honor Choirs were OUTSTANDING, and singers, directors, parents and grandparents left the Harris Theatre with hearts bursting!

Please consider engaging next year by attending the national conference in Kansas City. Furthermore, submit some honor choir applications on behalf of your students. The honor choir experience is an impactful one for our singers, worthy of your time and energy in preparation. You won’t regret it!

My congratulations and heartfelt gratitude are extended to Minnesota’s Mary Kay Geston, NCACDA President and co-program chair for this conference. Many, many leaders contributed to the success of this conference, but the vision was provided by the program chairs. Thank you Mary Kay and Mark!
