ORACDA Fall Workshop Set for Friday, October 14th - Full information here

Dear Middle and High School Choral Directors,


Our Fall Workshop is upon us.  You do not want to miss it!   It is being held this year on our state wide in service day, Friday, October 14th from 9AM-4PM at  Lakeridge High School in Lake Oswego.   There are engaging opportunities for all! 


Middle School Honor Choir


Nominate middle school students who are ready for a one-day Honor Choir experience.  Students will be led by the amazing Sandy Babb (OSU) for a day of choral singing and community building.  Students who attend the ACDA Honor Choir are encouraged to return as vocal leaders in their home school choirs. Please plan to attend or send a group chaperone if you are sending students, especially if that number is more than 5 from your school(s).


Middle school educators will have the opportunity to meet after lunch for a middle school focus session born out of the ideas of our fabulous members at the ACDA Summer Workshop. We will be sharing ideas and a few select pieces which focus on introducing harmony to your choirs of varying skill levels.


High School Choral Leadership Workshop directed by Wallace Long


Nominate your section leaders, an SATB quartet or octet for this fantastic opportunity!  These singers will learn three pieces and gain more confidence to lead by example.  Teachers are strongly encouraged to attend and sing with their students.  These students will perform at the end of the day concert.


High School Skill Building Sight-reading Choir directed by Anna Rikki, Southridge High School and Kristen Caldwell, Jesuit High School


Nominate students that will benefit from learning strategies to begin sight reading.  Students will gain more confidence with using solfège syllables and a counting system after engaging activities led by the clinicians. These students will perform at the end of the day concert.


All nominations due Sept. 30 (extended)


Student registration fee:  $35 (lunch, t-shirt, music)
