President's Message - May/June 2019


ACDA at All-State

First of all, many thanks to everyone who made CT-ACDA's "All-State Boot Camps" a success - Amanda Hanzlik, Joshua East, Sarah Bowe, Tim Mascarinas, Nick Tedeschi, Spencer Sonnenberg, Matt Harrison, Dale Griffa, Theresa Voss, Gwynne Wittman, Sarah Gleason - this couldn't have happened without you! We hope to continue offering this event in the future as a resource for CT directors and their All-State singers!

CT-ACDA also had a significant presence at the actual CMEA In-Service Conference. Congrats to Chris Stanley, Ellen Gilbert, and Amanda Hanzlik on their wonderful showcase performances; thanks to Jake Narverud and Cara Bernard for the (very well-attended!) CT-ACDA sponsored reading session; and thanks to Chris Wasko for organizing the happy hour with the All-State choral conductors. What a great weekend it was!

New Leadership

May wrapped up the elections for CT-ACDA President and President-Elect, and on July 1 I will be passing the torch to Mrs. Amanda Hanzlik as she takes over as President. I am excited to imagine what lies ahead for our organization with Amanda and President-Elect Matt Harrison at the helm!
