Sing for Virginia
In the likeness of Music in Our Schools Month, Sing for Virginia is an opportunity for choirs of all kinds to promote excellence in choral singing in our state. It is an opportunity to raise awareness, spotlight Virginia choirs and composers, and connect with each other through videos, photos, and lists. It is an opportunity for directors of young and older, school and community singers, to be active participants and advocates together for Virginia ACDA.
Virginia Choral Composer Connection
In conjunction with Sing for Virginia, we will debut the Virginia Choral Composer Connection. In order to share the great talent and works of Virginian choral composers, we would like to compile a database. We invite you to share your favorite Virginian composers or compositions through a Google Form. If you are a composer, please let us know about your work. The information collected will instantly be available on the Virginia ACDA website for all to see. What a tremendous resource this could be in discovering and promoting the great works of Virginian choral composers!
