UHS Students Selected to Participate in the Ultimate National Choral Experience at ACDA

Congratulations to Lucca DiMario, Amy Goodman, Bri Greeley, Abby Mangan and Anuj Peri who performed with the American Choral Directors Association (ACDA) All National Honor Choirs in Cincinnati, OH! This is the largest group of students from Unionville to qualify and attend ACDA. These students were chosen through a selective audition process to compete against other talented choral students across the country at the ACDA National Conference. 

The ACDA National Conference was held February 22-25. This conference brings choral directors, professionals, and students from across the country together for skill development as well as the opportunity to perform in popular venues for a supportive audience.The mission of the ACDA is “to inspire excellence and nurture lifelong involvement in choral music for everyone through education, performance, composition and advocacy.”

Jason Throne, the vocal teacher at Unionville High school describes the ACDA Honor Choir experience as phenomenal. He says, “Students meet some of the best high school singers from across the country and have the opportunity to work with some of the best conductors in the world. They also meet and work with many of the composers who give them insight into their works. No other place gives our students that sort of amazing experience.” 

Anuj Peri, one of the students selected by audition for the ACDA All National Honor Choirs, described that “There is no other experience that can replicate the amazing feeling that comes with performing with so many other talented students and a dedicated conductor. Performing at the national level is always going to be an amazing experience, but the people are also a big part of this as well. There is nothing better than to sing in a famous venue in front of a caring audience.”

The District is so proud of the students for representing UCFSD in the ACDA All National Honor Choir.
