Resources for Choral Professionals During the Pandemic. ACDA has created a page of information, ideas, and tools especially for choral conductors and educators. Most are free, and the page is updated regularly.
Included on the resource page is a living database of artists willing to make online guest appearances for choirs and music classes, which ACDA member Dr. Rebecca Lord has developed. There are separate lists in the directory for conductors, composers, vocalists, instrumentalists, and music technology professionals. It is an amazing offering of diverse professionals willing to appear virtually for choir classes, events, community and church choirs - about any choral situation. Visit the directory.
ACDA has created guidance for choral singing and study during the COVID-19 pandemic, The COVID-19 Response Committee Report (15 June 2020)
