About the Symposium

The American Choral Directors Association is pleased to announce the second Symposium on Research in Choral Singing, a new forum for the dissemination of research. Following the packed first symposium in 2018, the second symposium will be held on Friday and Saturday, May 1-2, 2020, on the campus of Georgia State University in Atlanta. The symposium will combine diverse presentational formats with opportunities for in-depth conversation, inquiry, and consideration of future research directions.

The intent of the symposium is aligned with the purpose of the International Journal of Research in Choral Singing: to advance knowledge and practice with respect to choral singing, choir sound, choral pedagogy, and related areas such as equity and inclusion in choral singing, school community partnerships, adolescent development, vocal development, and singing and well-being.
