ACDA National Conference
Founded in 1959, the American Choral Directors Association (ACDA) is a nonprofit music-education organization whose central purpose is to promote excellence in choral music through performance, composition, publication, research, and teaching. In addition, ACDA strives through arts advocacy to elevate choral music's position in American society.
Held once in two years, the ACDA national conference is a week packed full with showcases, lectures, panel discussions, reading sessions, networking and exhibitions. Up to 6,000 choral directors from junior high school to church, university and professional choirs will attend the confence.
Fimic is on site together with publishers Sulasol and Fennica Gehrman, displaying an exhibition of Finnish choral music and repertoire. Other exhibitors include notable music publishers, universities with choral programs, music retailers and makers of all things choral (dresses, gowns, uniforms, concert folders).
Fimic's booth is next to J W Pepper's booth at Hilton Chicago exhibition area. At the booth you can take a moment off the hectic conference life and listen to some of the great Finnish choral works.
