On September 24th, Providence College and RI_ACDA co-sponsored an In-Service Workshop for Choral Directors from 9:30am-1:30pm at the Providence College Smith Center for the Arts, as well as an All-State Prep day for students planning to audition for the RIMEA All-State this November.
Hello everyone, I hope your summer is going well. I am excited for another year of RI-ACDA events and would like to have a more formal process for the board this year. Please see our Leadership page here for our list of officers for the 2015-17 term.
As of right now, I feel that these are the roles that best serve our RI community. If we should see the need for more sub categories, I am very willing to ask more people to participate on the board.
- Reach out to inner city choirs by connecting them with college students studying to be conductors/teachers, giving both a chance to learn from each other.
- CONTINUE the workshops offered throughout the year.
Our first workshop is scheduled for Sept. 24th, with Dr. Lisa Graham giving a presentation. Jeff Kerr and Susan Hodgins will also present.
- The first ever RI ACDA HS Honor Choir performance with the University of Rhode Island Chorus and Warwick Symphony Orchestra.
- A Community Choir/Church Choir event – TBD
That is all for now! I look forward to working with you all and thank you for your dedication to choral music in RI
