Welcome to the Kentucky American Choral Directors Association website! If you are reading about ACDA for the first time, please take a few minutes to look at our state’s yearly offerings as shown on this page! For over 50 years, the American Choral Directors Association has been the preeminent association for choral conductors throughout the United States. The mission of ACDA is to inspire excellence in choral music through education, performance, composition and advocacy. We represent individuals who work in any capacity in leading choral music in schools, houses of worship, civic choral organizations, corporate or professional choral ensembles as well as the singers that comprise those organizations and composers who write music for them.
Here in the Bluegrass State, your KYACDA Leadership Team is ready to help guide you in any way we can. Utilize our annual events to recharge your teaching practices, reconnect with other choral professionals and renew your passion for choral music education! Once again, welcome to our site! I’m honored to serve as your President, and I look forward to seeing you soon!
Raye Hurley, President
American Choral Directors Association
Students "Join Now"!
The "Join Now" program runs September 5, 2017 - June 30, 2018. To utilize the program, just start the process for joining ACDA online. You will fill out a first page, which creates your account. When you click on "Save," the system reads the state you are residing in and on the next page, which offers membership category options, you will see that your student rate is $5. Select and proceed with the process. Your membership will be set up as soon as you complete the "Join Now" process.
This year, the $5 dues is offered only for new members in participating states, and for online joins.
If you join and pay online using the normal student rate of $35, we will be unable to refund regular student dues, so if you don't see the $5 option, please notify our membership coordinator (firstname.lastname@example.org) so that she can help you get it processed correctly.
