2017 ICEP OF THE AMERICAS:
30 Conductors, 7 Countries, Limitless Possibilities
The February 2017 ACDA Choral Journal features the current ICEP Conducting Fellows from the United States and South America. These conductors represent not only the future of choral music in their respective countries, they are the standard-bearers for the next generation of choral musicians. A new generation of trailblazers who value scholarship, education, mentorship, and service as cornerstones of our ever-evolving profession.
At the heart of any exchange are the amazing individuals who donate countless hours of service to administer these programs. For the 2017 ICEP of the Americas, ACDA has been fortunate to collaborate with outstanding choral leaders from South America who have supervised all aspects of this year’s ICEP exchange in their own respective countries. ACDA recognizes our partners from South America who continue to champion the choral music profession as they create opportunities for the next generation of leaders from Argentina, Brazil, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Mexico, and Uruguay.
