Our Alabama Choral Directors Association Summer Conference will take place on Monday and Tuesday, July 16-17, 2018. Please mark your calendars to reflect these dates. The conference will include much of what we return for year after year: interest sessions by Alabama choral directors, reading sessions that encompass all ACDA R&S areas, food, fellowship, and fun.

NAfME Members: Alabama ACDA will cover ACDA membership for AVA (Alabama Vocal Association) members who are attending the summer conference for the first time. Include a completed ACDA Membership Form with your registration.

All attendees are invited to a Monday evening pre-concert social at Heat Pizza Bar from 5:15-7:15pm. Alabama ACDA will provide a buffet prior to the Monday evening concert (a cash bar will be available). The social will be right down the street from the concert at First Presbyterian Church of Tuscaloosa. Make plans to come enjoy the great free food and fellowship!
