American Choral Directors Association

ACDA's Fund For Tomorrow

Help grow new choral singers and develop

new choral conductors with a gift to the Fund for Tomorrow

The Fund for Tomorrow supports ACDA programs that encourage new children's choirs, recruit and engage ACDA student members, and develop talented youth into new choral conductors and teachers.


The Fund for Tomorrow works to identify and provide seed money for new and innovative ways that attract children into choral singing, as well as efforts to reach young people who may not otherwise have access to the artistry and community of choral music.

For a number of years, we in Illinois ACDA have been discussing our painful awareness that access to high quality choral events and workshops is just not available to most urban choral teachers and students. Individuals have been trying to make contributions to our communal choral culture, but Join Voices Chicago is the first time where we seem to have created an event which has the potential to have a real impact on a significant number of singers and teachers. I know this festival was only one day in the life of everyone, but I found myself getting teary numerous times when I realized how profound the effects could be.

"It is encouraging to think that we in ACDA have a positive effect on singers in our communities, regardless of where they live and what their own communities can provide.” --- Lee Kesselman
