    ACDA: Experience the Music Online!

    Thousands of choral directors are gathered this week in in Chicago for the 2011 American Choral Directors Association National Conference.

    There are many opportunities that have attendees enthusiastic about the conference this year:  amazing performances and intriguing sessions to attend, networking and socializing opportunities with other directors, and access to a vibrant exhibit hall where directors and the companies that serve them come together for idea exchanges on a grand scale.   Members of the Pepper team are here as well, of course, and this year, as the sponsor of the Repertoire and Standards Reading Sessions, we have something special for you.

    Whether you are able to be in  Chicago or not, you can still experience the music from the event.  When you visit jwpepper.com/acda you will be able to listen to and see music selected for the 13 different Repertoire and Standards sessions.  We post as much music and recording as the publisher allows.   In most cases, full-length recordings and octavos are available for you.  You can even bookmark or type notes about the music, and refer to those any time you wish.  There is much work done by the ACDA committee members throughout the country to bring these works to light, and we’re happy to provide this free service to highlight their work.  As this service is exclusive for Pepper customers, we will ask you to log in to use ACDA Online.

    In addition to the Repertoire and Standards session music, some publishers will also make music featured in their sessions available after the conference.  We welcome you to come experience the music.   We wish you could all make it to Chicago, but if you can’t, we invite you to visit   jwpepper.com/acda to experience the music from the conference.

    We hope you enjoy ACDA Online!



    1. I thank you for providing this service! I was at the ACDA Conference, but could only attend 4 of the reading sessions, and I was interested in MANY more. This allows me to see and hear the music from the other sessions, and I am grateful.

      Just one note: In the college/university reading session, I attempted to listen to “My Flight to Heaven” and instead, Palestrina’s “Sicut Cervus” was the piece on the sound track. Can you fix this? I would very much like to hear “My Flight to Heaven!”
