For over 50 years, the American Choral Directors Association has been the preeminent association for choral conductors throughout the United States.
Do you direct a choir?
ACDA is all about professionals like you! Our members teach choral music in public and private schools - kindergarten through senior high school - and at the college and university levels. They conduct a variety of choral groups, including boychoirs, children's choirs, men's and women's choruses, junior and senior high school choirs, college and university choruses, ethnic choirs, vocal-jazz ensembles, and symphony choruses. They also conduct choirs in their communities and in their places of worship.
If you are a student and do not hold a part-time or full-time choral conducting position, you are invited to join as a Student member. Retired conductors with no paid position can take advantage of the Retired member category. Become an ACDA Associate. ACDA welcomes all lovers of choral singing, be you a student of choral music, a singer, or fan of this vibrant genre. Access the online version of Choral Journal, listen to members only choral music 24/7, and network with other choral afficionados. To learn more about member categories, visit this page.
