ACDA - American Choral Directors Association
Founded in the winter of 2002 this professional student organization provides a real link to the world of professional choral directors for our choral music students. These choral teachers and conductors of the future derive technical and inspirational experience from chapter music reading sessions, the monthly professional magazine The Choral Journal, and attending the biennial national and regional conventions. While any student who loves choral music may join, the Chapter members are primarily vocal music majors.

Interfraternal Music Council
The five music organizations of the School of Music have elected to form the Interfraternal Music Council, which consists of two representatives from each organization who meet twice a month. The Interfraternal Music Council serves two main purposes. The first purpose is to provide formal communication between organizations in order to prevent conflicts and to foster joint ventures; the second is to provide a more efficient way for faculty to request assistance, whether that is financial or volunteer efforts. In an effort to make the process as efficient as possible, we ask that the faculty use the IMC as a way to communicate with all of the organizations at once. The separate organizations will work together using their distinct abilities to meet requests to the best of their ability. This new system will provide a way for faculty to make the request only once either through email or in person at the bi-weekly IMC meetings. Please feel free to contact Jordan Dean (email@example.com) if you have any questions or concerns.
