Tomorrow ICACDA is heading out to Salt Lake City, and we can't wait! Caitlin and I have spent the night packing, listening to exciting choral music (like Jake Runestad's incredible Alleluia), and perusing the ACDA national conference official app. I think I have shuffled the different workshops about 4 different times and we still can't decide between the incredible opportunities! In anticipation for the conference, here are two more of our bloggers!

Involvement in ACDA: Special Events Coordinator and liaison to the advisor
Favorite thing about choral music: My favorite thing about choral music is the atmosphere that a piece of music can create. The sense of community that can be built in a choral ensemble is what caused me to fall in love with it.
One thing I’m excited about in Salt Lake City: I am so excited to sit down and talk with some of my favorite composers as well as spending time with my peers to learn more about our rising field of choral music. I can’t wait!

Favorite thing about choral music: It gives you a chance to connect with others in a very genuine and intimate, but simple way.
One thing that you are excited about for Salt Lake City: i’m excited for all of the different choral workshops! As a future music educator and choral conductor, getting to observe, chat with, and learn from the experts in my field is simply invaluable to me.
