Hello, and welcome to Ithaca College ACDA’s official coverage of the National Conference in Salt Lake City, UT. We can’t wait to get on the plane with an incredible 15 members and attend all the wonderful opportunities that the conference has to offer. As a chapter, we hope to cover as much of the conference as possible, attending different workshops, concerts, receptions, and exhibits... and we’re going to write all about it right here on www.ithacaacda.org!
We are delighted to provide the official blog for this conference, and we hope that you have as much fun reading our posts as we are going to have writing them! Our authors will be IC ACDA members ranging from freshmen who are going to their very first conference, to graduate students who can bring the knowledge of their prior teaching experience, to seniors who will be taking what they learn in Salt Lake into their first years of teaching. We’ll be posting about ideas from as many workshops as we can attend, the incredible repertoire that we hear at the concerts, our visits to the exhibits, and even our conversations and experiences in networking with some of the choral world’s finest conductors
We also be “live tweeting” the conference from our Twitter page (@IthacaACDA), so feel free to follow us there for live action updates! You can also join in the fun with the hashtags: #ICACDA and #ACDAinSaltLake.
Over the next 20 days until the conference, we will be profiling some of our bloggers, starting with our president, Rebecca Saltzman:
Name: Rebecca Saltzman
Involvement in ACDA: 4 years in ACDA, 3 years on the executive board of ICACDA, 2 years as President of ICACDA
Favorite thing about choral music: How incredible it is to work together with a group of people to create great music.
One thing that you are excited about for Salt Lake City: I can’t wait for ALL of the conference, but after perusing the workshops I do know that one thing I am excited about are the workshops about the aging voice. As a student conductor for a community choir, I know I’ll be able to bring these skills back to Ithaca with me.
