President's Message - Sept 2019

Dear CT-ACDA Members,

I am truly overjoyed to be writing my very first monthly letter to all of you, as President of our Connecticut Chapter of ACDA.  ACDA has been so instrumental in my journey, development and connection as a choral musician. As I sat down to write this letter, I kept coming back to the theme of connection. Connection matters in all areas of life, and connection to our profession and colleagues is a vital element in career growth, satisfaction and evolution. It is my sincere desire that the Connecticut ACDA will be a source of connection and joy for every single member.
