The TWU Concert Choir, conducted by Joni Jensen, DMA, professor of voice and director of choral activities, presented a 30-minute program twice at the 2019 American Choral Director's Association (ACDA) 60th Anniversary Jubilee National Conference Friday, March 1, 2019. The conference was held at the Kauffman Performing Arts Center in downtown Kansas City.
The invitation to perform was a rare honor, with more than 225 choirs auditioning for 27 conference spots, chosen via a blind, multi-level jury process. "This was truly a landmark experience for all of our members, who were able to see the high caliber they are being associated with, and to realize how far they’ve come- shoulder to shoulder with best choirs, receiving standing ovations. This event legitimizes all the hard work we’ve done. We’ve been stretching our way forward and have finally broken out onto the main stage," said Jensen.
