The Indiana Choral Directors Association is a member of the Alliance for Indiana Music Education.
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
ICDA has just wrapped up another successful summer conference last June. Our headliners, Joe Miller and Ken Fulton, were well-received by conference attendees. Their notes may be found under the “conference” tab, “previous years’ presentation and materials.” A welcome addition this year was the choral evensong at Trinity Episcopal Church of Indianapolis. And, the All State Jazz Choir gave a fine performance on Tuesday night of the conference, under the able direction of James Spillane.
