Thank you to all who attended, presented, and performed at the ACDA-MN fall conference! Dr. Andre Thomas was the perfect person to lead the very first Urban High School Choral Festival, and we hope to continue that festival in the years to come with the partnership of VocalEssence. During the whole weekend with every rehearsal and performance, learning and inspiration was evident and so exciting to watch! Thanks to the army of volunteers that make our organization run smoothly. I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season. Enjoy your singers and their musical gifts to their audiences. We touch more people that we will ever know with our music making. You are doing great and important work!
