Student Membership - $5 fee through October 18! (click link at left)

A Foundation for Success:  Student Membership is for high school, college or university, and graduate school students who don't yet have a paying choral position. At $35 per year, this membership gives you access to almost all of the benefits of regular active membership.

Why Student Membership? Professional connections through ACDA provide a network of support and growth as you begin your career. Student members have access to financial assistance in attending local and national ACDA conferences, and serve as volunteers at the annual Voices United conference.
