The Joining Voices Festival Choir is open to high school/college age singers who will apply to participate in pairs. The festival choir will be conducted by Dr. Anton Armstrong, with integrated body singing sessions led by Dr. Therees Hibbard. Rehearsals will take place on Wednesday, March 4th and the choir will sing on the Marcus Center main stage during the conference opening night concert. March 4th is also Immersion Day: a day focused on working with singers who have a variety of specific needs, with special emphasis on creating meaningful connections between singers with varying abilities. ACDA member/directors are encouraged to seek out and submit applications for cross-ability pairs of singers, one of whom must be a singer who experiences challenges related to disability. We encourage singer partners who would like to sing with, and support family members and friends with a variety of physical, sensory, and cognitive challenges. Please go to the Joining Voices/Honor Choir Auditions Page for application instructions.
