Pasadena 2018 Registration is Open!
wdacda logoRegistration is now open for the 2018 Western Division ACDA conference in Pasadena, CA: "Let Our Songs Be Heard". Why go? Because participants from five different states (Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada, and Utah) have this opportunity, once every two years, to come together to learn, fellowship, listen, sing, and, ultimately celebrate the Choral art. One doesn't have to wade through the thousands of faces as at a national ACDA conference to quickly find friends and colleagues - we're all together on ONE track!
