Performing Choirs and Interest Session Application

Applications for Interest Sessions and Performing Choirs

For the 2022 NC ACDA Fall Conference

NC ACDA invites our membership to submit proposals for interest sessions and applications for performing choirs at the 2022 Fall Conference to be held October 7 -8, 2022 on the campus at Duke University in Durham.

To be eligible for selection, all proposals and applications must be completed by a current, paid-to-date member of ACDA. The application window for both Interest Sessions and Performing Choirs will be open from April 1, 2022 through May 15, 2022 at 5:00pm. Directors will be notified in early June.

To Propose an Interest Session

As our membership encompasses many areas of the choral arts, we are looking for interest sessions that will speak to the diversity of conference attendees. We’re looking for your best interest session ideas to help our members reach their full potential, be challenged and inspired, and advance their art. We encourage sessions of all shapes and sizes in order to address the current needs of our membership in the current choral climate.

Applications will be reviewed anonymously, and adjudicators will use the National ACDA Interest Session Rubric.

Interest Session proposals can be submitted by clicking here. Contact Interest Session Chair, Dr. Eric Johnson, with any questions at ejohnson24@gardner-webb.edu.

To Apply to be a Performing Choir

Choirs of all ages and all voicings are invited to apply to perform. Applicants are asked to consider repertoire representative of a variety of styles and musical traditions, as well as representative of diverse cultures and communities. Repertoire that promotes historically marginalized voices/composers, addresses themes of societal inequalities, and/or promotes cultural competence is strongly encouraged.

Applications will be reviewed anonymously, and adjudicators will use the National ACDA Performing Choirs Rubric.
