Date: January 28, 2014
During the 2014 Eastern Division Conference, ACDA will present . . .
The Susquehanna Chorale, founded in 1981 by artistic director Linda Tedford, has emerged as one of the outstanding choral ensembles in the United States. The thirty-five-voice chamber choir is recognized by critics and audiences alike for its commitment to excellence and for its artistic interpretation of choral works of many styles and historical periods. Reflecting its dedication to the music of our time, the group has performed the East Coast premieres of many outstanding works, and it has commissioned several new works for its concert series. The Susquehanna Chorale is honored to be the recipient of Chorus America’s highest national award: The Margaret Hillis Achievement Award for Choral Excellence. The group’s five CDs have received national recognition, with two — Wondrous Love and American Treasures — receiving consideration for a Grammy nomination. The Chorale cosponsored the Central Pennsylvania Choral Festival for seventeen years, bringing internationally known conductors to Central Pennsylvania. The group is also known for its educational outreach program for area students between grades 3–12. In addition, it sponsors a conducting internship for area college students.
The ACDA Eastern Division Conference will take place February 5-8, 2014, in Baltimore, Maryland. You can register NOW.
