ACDA International Conductors Exchange Program
The ACDA International Conductors Exchange Program (ICEP) was inaugurated in 2010 with a highly successful exchange with Cuba coinciding with the 2012 division conferences. In 2014, this extraordinary program will work with China and our partner, the China Chorus Association, to provide once again the opportunity to create meaningful international collaborations that will coincide with all seven division conferences. To this end, we have established an ongoing exchange program of potential leaders from the U.S. choral community and their international counterparts.
ACDA is pleased to announce the 2015 International Conductors Exchange Program (ICEP) with Sweden. ICEP is providing opportunities for the next generation of choral leaders to represent the United States as ambassadors to the world in the exchange of music, ideas, and cultures. In 2015, ACDA will host fourteen choral conductors from Sweden who will travel to the United States to be official guests in each of the seven divisions and at the National Conference in Salt Lake City, Utah. "In turn, the U.S. conductors will have the opportunity to participate in Nordic Choral Directors' Conference in Copenhagen/Malmö , arranged by Swedish and Danish Choral Directors Association. The official language of the conference is English but some of the seminars will be held in the Scandinavian languages."
