NextDirection Choral Leadership Conference

Attention, directors of high school students in Arizona!

Do you know a current high school student who is considering a career in choral conducting? They should apply for a Scholarship to the NextDirection Choral Leadership Conference, taking place this summer. Last year, AzACDA awarded scholarships to two talented high school students, and we are proud to be able to offer that opportunity once again to two qualified applicants. In addition, this year
for the first time a $500 travel stipend will be awarded as well.

What: Students will explore conducting and rehearsing, leadership in the choral classroom, life as a music major, vocal health, varied genres of choral music, technology resources, how to choose the right school, and what it means to be a choral leader.  More info can be found here: https://acda.org/ACDA/NextDirection
Cost: If awarded a scholarship, materials, room, and board are covered, as well as the $500 stipend for travel. Students and their families need to arrange transportation to and from the conference.
