A Life of Song: ACDA National Conference 2017

About Us

  • The UMKC student chapter of the American Choral Directors Association is an active group of undergraduate and graduate students from the Conservatory of Music and Dance

  • Membership includes aspiring choral music educators, conductors, church musicians, performers, and composers

  • This chapter's goal is to provide these students with opportunities to grow as professional choral musicians, make connections with professionals in the field, keep up with the latest trends, and provide a social community of mentors and supporters

Our Project

  • We are looking to send a group of students to the 2017 American Choral Directors Association National Conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota

  • Estimated cost for this trip per student (including registration, travel, lodging, and food) is approximately $550

  • Every dollar donated will go directly to helping students cover the costs to attend this conference

About the Conference

  • The American Choral Directors Association National Conference is a biennial four-day event that brings together choral musicians (conductors, singers, composers) from across the world

  • Conference includes:

    • professional development and academic interest sessions

    • choral performances by world-renowned ensembles

    • choral music resources to attendees

    • opportunities to network with professional conductors and directors of graduate school programs

Why Give?

  • The national conference experience is remarkable and invaluable for aspiring professional choral musicians. Students who attend return to their home schools with a new energy, passion, and wealth of knowledge that they can then share with their peers

  • Your donation can spark a single student to impact a generation of future music educators to inspire creativity
