WACDA Conference Performing Choirs
The 2022 Western Region conference committee is thrilled to announce nine concert sessions as part of the 2022 Division Conference in Long Beach. The ensembles selected address the conference theme of Lift Every Voice and Sing, highlighting the diversity of our membership. Geographically, every state in Western Region is represented by our accepted ensembles. We are proud to include outstanding high school groups, community ensembles, vocal jazz, and both 2 year and four year college choirs. Invited choirs include Nation (Tim Takach/Jocelyn Hagen), VOX Femina (Iris Levine), Tonality (Alexander Blake), and Bach Collegium San Diego (Ruben Valenzuela). The conference will conclude with our honor choir concert on Saturday, March 5th, featuring a youth honor choir (Dr. Marcela Molina), high school SSAA (Mr. Tesfa Wondemagnehu), and a Gospel SATB (Dr. Rosephanye Powell).
Additionally, Western Region ACDA is excited to highlight outstanding video performances from the last 18 months in a conference video series titled Stories of the Pandemic. The videos selected reflect innovative performance practice, evidence of resilience and grit, and a representation of a diversity of voices from throughout the COVID 19 pandemic.
This conference will be a celebration of a return to ensemble singing, and we are so excited for you to be part of the experience!
