Call for Interest Sessions: 2021 Summer Conference

The MassACDA Summer Conference will be held at Smith College (Northampton, MA) from Sunday July 11 to Wednesday July 14.
In addition to presentations from our distinguished clinicians André Thomas and Judy Bowers, our Summer Conference will include 8-10 one-hour interest sessions, tapping the expertise of our own Massachusetts ACDA members. We welcome your application to lead a session on a topic of your own choosing, bearing in mind that Drs. Thomas and Bowers will be offering sessions on conducting, developmental choirs, and the adolescent voice. A committee of MassACDA Board members will review the applications and choose sessions to complement the offerings of our headliner clinicians. We are looking for sessions that will further stimulate, challenge, and educate our colleagues, and contribute to choral excellence in the Commonwealth and beyond. Interest session leaders are not paid––they must register for the Conference, but they will receive a $100 discount. Please submit your application online at THIS LINK.
The deadline for submissions is March 1, 2021. If you have questions, please contact Anne Watson Born at
