The American Choral Directors Association (ACDA) is a nonprofit music-education organization whose central purpose is to promote excellence in choral music through performance, composition, publication, research, and teaching.
ACDA also strives through arts advocacy to elevate choral music's position in American society.
Who are we?
ACDA members teach choral music in public and private schools (kindergarten through senior high school) and at the college and university levels. They conduct a variety of choral groups, including boy's choirs, children's choirs, men's and women's choruses, junior and senior high school choirs, college and university choruses, ethnic choirs, vocal-jazz ensembles, and symphony choruses. They also conduct choirs in their communities and in their places of worship. Both the state and national ACDA organizations offer a variety of excellent performance opportunities for you and your choirs.
