2016 AzACDA Summer Conference

MCC PACThis year's AzACDA Summer Conference was held July 18-20, 2016 at our new conference home – the Mesa Community College Performing Arts Center! The schedule was rich with offerings for every area of our constituency. Headliners Mary Goetze and Brad Holmes shared their expertise on rehearsal techniques, interpretation, tone, artistic process, world music and more. Seven full reading sessions, a wide variety of interest sessions by Arizona choral leaders, exhibits, Let’s Talk Shop breakout groups, and three hybrid interest/reading sessions were also featured. Other highlights included a performance by the Cincinnati Children’s Choir, social activities, music discounts and a free trip to the Musical Instrument Museum. Thanks to all who joined us and especially to the many Board members and volunteers who made this a successful event!
