The members of the Ithaca College student chapter of ACDA are incredibly grateful to have attended the National ACDA Conference in Minneapolis this week! Over the course of four days, sixteen of our members attended interest sessions, panel discussions, reading sessions, concerts, exhibits, and receptions. True to the 2017 theme, "A Life of Song," we learned from choral music enthusiasts of all ages, from children's choirs to college students to musicians who have been in the field for decades. All IC members found an experience that greatly inspired them. We hope to bring what we have learned back to the Ithaca community, sharing music, ideas, and passion to make the world a better place.
We would like to thank the many people that supported us along the way. First, thank you to our chapter advisor, Dr. Galvan, for guiding our chapter all year and for assisting with this blog. We are also grateful to the Office of Student Engagement and Multicultural Affairs at Ithaca College for helping us plan the trip to Minneapolis. Many thanks as well to those who supported us financially so that we could bring 16 people all the way to Minnesota. To the students from Hostra University and Vassar College who wrote guest blog posts, thank you for sharing your experiences. Thank you to all the people who were involved in this conference- presenters, conductors, performers, staff, and volunteers. And finally, thank you so much to everyone in State and National ACDA leadership who worked incredibly hard to make this conference a success! We are grateful for the opportunity to share our experiences with you on the National Conference Blog.
Safe travels to everyone, and feel free to check in with us in the future as we continue to share our choral music experiences from Ithaca College.
