Welcome to VT-ACDA!

A message from the VT-ACDA President:

September 6, 2021

Dear Vermont ACDA Members,

As the weather turns a bit cooler and the first touches of fall color arrive in Vermont, we look forward to an autumn of hope and optimism. This hope might take the form of the possibility of singing indoors again or, for some communities, planning a more traditional concert season. It could be the optimism that, no matter what the restrictions, we are slowly returning to schools and community organizations in face-to-face settings.

While this sense of possibilty is palpable in many of us, VT-ACDA also recognizes that this season might carry some apprehension as well. Some organizations are implementing their own COVID-19 protocols based on last winter’s guidelines while others are following current guidelines. It can be a confusing time for choral ensembles and their directors to know what is necessary and what is not.

In order to help you when making decisions this fall, make sure to check out the current information from ACDA National. If you do not yet know, your membership access comes with a wealth of resources available, ranging from pandemic guidance to composer resources to my favorite site for all things choir related: ChoralNet.

VT-ACDA is committed to our advocacy role and working hard to support our members’ efforts. If you need support with a specific issue please reach out to me at president@vtacda.org. I look forward to supporting you as a VT-ACDA member.


Susanne Norwood

VT-ACDA President, 2021-23 Term
