NAU Meets National Standards
Perhaps our biggest accomplishment was our fundraising. Together, through 7 fundraising events including our thriving Carolers program, we raised over $7,000 to send our membership to the National Conference in Salt Lake City, UT!
Our members enjoyed reading sessions run by senior music education majors, presentations and workshops by each of our 6 graduate students in Choral Conducting and both Dr. Holder and Dr. Copley, four social events, a symposium that featured 10 sessions/250 performers and a full house/headliner Dr. Jo-Michael Scheibe, and more. We even started the annual ACDA Curry Summer Music Camp scholarship, which benefits a promising young musician attending camp during the gorgeous Flagstaff summers.
