JOIN VOICES, CHICAGO! 2018
JOIN VOICES, CHICAGO! 2018 is part of an urban initiative to bring together Chicago public School (CPS) students and teachers in a non-competitive, supportive, impactful, and inspirational choral festival setting. High school students, teachers, administrators, and college-aged future educators join in a day-long event without fiscal barriers to hamper their participation. A well-regarded clinician works with each choir and prepares a combined selection (provided) on-site for all to sing. Future educators are involved in a substantial, pedagogical way to broaden their awareness of social and curricular issues. CPS teachers have the rare opportunity to gain professional development hours at no cost to them. They also can experience ACDA as a proactive, advocacy organization that is working on serving the needs of generally underserved populations.
