About The Event
We all seek experiences that RESONATE with us: emotionally, spiritually, intellectually, musically. In choral music, we also seek the resonance of the voice through our bodies and in performance spaces. As conductors, it is our mission to create experiences that will RESONATE in numerous ways.
Performances often RESONATEwith a person because they vibrate sympathetically with some experience that the individual carries within, and the impact of those experiences cannot be underestimated; however, it might be true that only certain experiences have been represented, perhaps making it difficult to find resonance and relevance for many.
The 2022 ACDA Eastern Region Board and Conference Committee seek to create sound waves that travel further in different directions, fostering diversity and inclusivity in ways that RESONATE with more people. The concerts, sessions, and presentations will reflect the many different life experiences and realities of our members and those we hope will become part of our shared resonance.
