North Central ACDA is one of seven geographic regions that comprise the American Choral Directors Association (ACDA). The North Central region includes Iowa, Nebraska, North Dakota, Minnesota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin, and has approximately 3,000 members.
Founded in 1959, ACDA is a nonprofit music education organization whose central purpose is to promote excellence in choral music through performance, composition, publication, research, and teaching. In addition, ACDA strives through arts advocacy to elevate choral music’s position in American society.
Through concerts, educational clinics, choral music reading sessions, and exhibits by music-industry partners, ACDA members have access to diverse and practical conference forums in which to develop their skills and professional knowledge. National conferences are held in odd-numbered years and regional conferences are held in even-numbered years. For more information about ACDA, please visit acda.org.
