ACDA Eastern Division College and University
The collegiate community for the Eastern Division will provide opportunities for university directors to discuss important issues related to the profession.   As your College & University Repertoire and Standards Chair, I have reflected upon questions that have been posed to me or concerns that I have discussed with several of you.  I believe that some group networking can take place via this community discussion group.   Topics may include:  amount of rehearsal time, load equivalents for choirs, grading of choral singers, tenure & promotion, managing a budget in this current economic climate, retrenchment, vocal staff in relation to the number of voice students or number in the total music program.   Feel free to add a topic of your concern.  I hope you will join the discussion!   Peggy Dettwiler, DMA Director of Choral Activities Mansfield University 570-662-4721

ACDA International Conductors Exchange Program (ICEP)
In 2010, the ACDA International Conductors Exchange Program (ICEP) was re-introduced to its membership as a means to create opportunities for international dialogue and exchange between the next generation of leaders in the choral profession. Since that time, ACDA has administered successful exchanges with Cuba (2012), China (2014), Sweden (2015), and South Korea (2016). The objectives of the ACDA International Conductors Exchange Program are: To create connections between potential leaders of the U.S. choral community with counterparts across the globe. To forge stronger relationships between the American Choral Directors Association and choral associations across the world To raise the visibility and leadership role of the American Choral Directors Association in the global choral community. ------------------------------------- ACDA is pleased to announce the 2017 International Conductors Exchange Program (ICEP) with countries representing North, Central and South America. The 2017 ICEP of the AMERICAS is the most robust international exchange program offered by ACDA since its inception almost 60 years ago. In 2017, ACDA will partner with Argentina, Bahamas, Brazil, Canada, Costa Rica, Mexico and Puerto Rico. Each partner country will select a pre-determined number of participants to travel to the US and in turn, each partner country will then host the same number of US participants in their country. Applicants are asked to indicate their top three preferences below. ICEP is providing opportunities for the next generation of choral leaders to represent the United States as ambassadors to the world in the exchange of music, ideas, and cultures. In 2017, ACDA will host visiting international conductors representing all of the Americas. These Visiting International Conductors (VICs) will travel to the United States as choral music ambassadors to engage in official residencies with institutions and ACDA chapters throughout the country. These US residencies will include attendance at the 2017 ACDA national conference in Minneapolis, MN. In turn, our partner countries will host U.S. conductors to be official guests of their respective countries in 2017. ICEP Application Deadline: July 1, 2016. To apply online, please follow this Link.
