Repertoire & Standards

R&S Committee Purpose & Standards

The fourteen Repertoire and Standards (R&S) Committees provide support, vision, and resources for every major area of choral work.  Committees play an important role in serving their respective choral genres. R&S committees provide:

  • Repertoire and literature recommendations
  • Documents and Resources
  • Leadership and Information
  • Networking among colleagues
  • Maintaining Excellent Standards among colleagues
  • Professional Development Opportunities
  • Promoting Choral music performance and participation in the lives of people

  • Repertoire and Standards Committee Chairs, appointed at the national, division, and state levels, serve conductors, teachers, composers, and constituencies who share similar interests. Chairs possess demonstrated expertise in a specific choral area and serve as leaders in the three primary efforts:

  • Collaboration
  • Communication
  • Commitment

  • The Repertoire and Standards Committees have a vital role in the ACDA. Repertoire and Standards Committees chairs and their members provide resources that promote excellence in all aspects of the performance of choral music.
