The American Choral Directors Association is a national organization of choral musicians dedicated to fostering choral singing that provides artistic, cultural, and spiritual experiences for all participants. These choral experiences span the compass from early scholastic to collegiate choirs; community to professional choirs; and the multitude of choirs in our churches, synagogues, and temples. It is ACDA’s hope that our presence and continued work help nurture choral opportunities wherever they may exist, and provide a network of people, resources, and advocacy to help expand and strengthen the choral community throughout the United States.

In Hawaii, the state chapter of ACDA serves as an invaluable resource for the choral community though the sponsorship of workshops, clinics, and membership meetings throughout the year. A major thrust of our efforts is to bring nationally recognized experts in choral music to the islands to work with our directors, choirs, and individual singers to create experiences that nurture a love of choral singing and deepens the ties among us in the choral community in the state.
