ACDA Partnership

True harmony results when balance of pitch, tone, and dynamic create music that is truly greater than the sum of its parts. It is this with this beautiful balance in the mind that The Church Music Institute and The American Choral Directors Association announce a new dimension to an agreement that began in 2010 for mutual support of excellence in choral music. This new arrangement, which was formalized in February, gives ACDA members a discounted Church Music Institute membership.

ACDA members will receive all CMI member benefits including access to its fully searchable online Sacred Music Library with over 20,000 curated choral selections and over 15,000 organ composition titles as well as discounted registration to the Institute’s workshops and courses.

“We are excited to work with ACDA in this way, and for the opportunity it will give those working in churches to make their jobs easier, more fulfilling, and give them access to fine repertoire,” said Dr. Charlotte Kroeker, Executive Director of CMI.

“I’ve just enjoyed a tour of the CMI website and library,” said Bryan Black, ACDA National R&R for Music in Worship. “The library is an amazing resource which compliments the institute’s goals—goals which are clearly resonant with ACDA’s mission for those who serve in sacred music.”

For over 60 years, American Choral Directors Association has been the preeminent association for choral conductors throughout the United States. The organization promotes excellence in choral music through performance, composition, publication, research, teaching, and advocacy has maintained and evolved those goals into the organization throughout its six decades.
