Each year, the Greater New Haven Community Chorus offers the GNHCC Ronald D. Konetchy Choral Conducting Assistant Scholarship to a university or college student who is pursuing a degree in music and interested in the art of choral conducting.  The program presents a remarkable opportunity for a student to gain real-world experience through weekly interaction with this large chorus of varying levels and ability.

Applications are now being accepted.


ACDA International Conductors Exchange Program

Friday, February 20, 2015

GNHCC hosted Swedish choral conductors who worked with the chorus on Friday evening, February 20, 2015 at a special rehearsal.  The two visiting guest conductors were Pär Olofsson and Ida Fahl.

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 worked with China and their partner, the China Chorus Association, to provide once again the opportunity to create meaningful international collaborations that coincided with all seven of their annual division conferences.  To this end, they have established an ongoing exchange program of potential leaders from the U.S. choral community and their international counterparts.

The mission of the American Choral Directors Association is to inspire excellence in choral music through education, performance, composition, and advocacy.
