  • 32 needs-based students in grades 4-10 participated in the ACDA-MN state honor choir program

  • 22 choral directors engaged in professional development opportunities presented at Summer Dialogue and the ACDA division conference

  • 4 graduate students were assisted in their pursuit of higher education in choral conducting or music education (including an award from the Alice T. Larsen Memorial Scholarship Fund)

  • 2 high school students were supported with a new scholarship to attend the ACDA Next Direction Leadership Conference, which brought together students from across the country interested in pursuing a career in choral music
