I am delighted to announce the return of the 2020 Central and North Central Region CRC: Collegiate Repertoire Choir! This choir of gifted college and university students will convene in Milwaukee, WI as part of the 2020 combined North Central and Central Region Conference. The goals of the CRC are to expose talented and committed collegiate singers to excellent choral repertoire, to provide singers and conferees the opportunity to observe a master clinician in rehearsal of this repertoire, to encourage collegiate choristers to make contacts with established professionals as well as each other, and to encourage college students to participate fully in ACDA conventions early in their careers. The format allows an upbeat and energetic pace without the pressure and logistical concerns of performance. The CRC will meet on-site and will be integrated fully into the convention schedule.
