TWU Concert Choir invited to sing at the 2019 American Choral Director's Association (ACDA) National Conference

ACDA is the premier choral organization in the country. It produces a highly respected publication, the Choral Journal, provides leadership and scholarship opportunities, sets repertoire and research standards, and oversees state and regional chapters each with their own respective conferences.

Over 225 choirs auditioned for 27 conference spots, chosen via a blind, multi-level jury process. This invitation is a rare and high honor, especially as this is the 60th Year Jubilee Conference. The Concert Choir will present a 30-minute program two times at the conference as well as a preview performance in Denton and recruiting performances during the trip.

The conference will occur in Kansas City, MO from February 27-March 2, 2019.
