Dear Maryland/DC ACDA Members,
I am excited to begin my term as President of our MD/DC state chapter! Having grown up in Maryland, gone to UMD, and conducted and sung in our region, I have met some of you over the years, but I am looking forward to meeting and reconnecting with you in the months to come!
First, please take 5 minutes to fill out our 2021 MD/DC ACDA MEMBER SURVEY here. We value your feedback as it will help shape our programming for the next two years!
We hope to see you at some of our upcoming events (with more in the works):
In August, we have our annual Voices United Summer Conference (virtual) on August 6-7 and two free Zoom pop-up professional development sessions on 8/14 and 8/21 led by wonderful educators and conductors in our region to jump-start your fall rehearsal planning (more details below.)
We are excited to partner with MCEA (Maryland Choral Educators Association) on Sat. 10/9 for a Fall Reading Session in person at the Center for the Arts in Baltimore. This event will be free for members and we will be collecting donations for students in need to attend MCEA Maryland All-State Choir and ACDA Eastern Region Division Honor Choir in 2022. Join us for a diverse reading session followed by lunch on the garden patio so we can reconnect with each other in person!
We are also planning a Collegiate Music Day in the spring geared toward college music education students and early-career music teachers.
If you have any questions or comments, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I so look forward to seeing you at some of our future events and wish you a recuperative summer and a safe, healthy, and musical fall!
