We will also have presentations from Arreon A. Harley-Emerson, ACDA National Diversity Initiatives chair, and Jace Saplan from the University of Hawaii. Other reading sessions will be on the following topics: CPDL, Advanced Rounds, Text Driven Middle School Music, NW Self Published Compositions, Vocal Jazz, Rhythmic Focused Literature, Social Justice and Choral Music from Female Composers/Arrangers.This will be a great event full of new ideas and lots of literature. I look forward to seeing you at our Virtual SI 2021 and in person at SI 2022!
