The American Choral Directors Association (ACDA) is a non-profit music organization composed of over 18,000 choral musicians representing schools, colleges and universities, industry and institutional organizations, houses of worship, and community and professional choirs. The mission of the American Choral Directors Association is to inspire excellence in choral music through education, performance, composition, and advocacy.
ACDA is divided into seven geographic regions as well as into state chapters, each with its own conferences, newsletters, and programming. Residents of Indiana who join ACDA also become members of the Indiana chapter, the Indiana Choral Directors Association (ICDA). All Indiana members receive copies of Choral Journal (the ACDA national magazine), Resound (the Central Division newsletter) and Notations (Indiana’s newsletter, printed three times a year).
All-State Vocal Jazz
Another of ICDA's primary functions is to promote high quality singing in the schools of the state, including through the Indiana All-State Honor Choir. Our 2016 All-State Honor Choir guest conductor will be Anton Armstrong of St. Olaf College. Information on auditioning for the 2016 choir (some areas audition in spring 2015, some areas in fall 2015) will be available under the All-State Groups tab.
