Welcome to the Bay Area Region Page!
As the SF Bay Region’s representative, I am delighted that you have interest in the CCDA – we serve a wide variety of choirs and are always trying to expand our reach. Did you know we have a SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA FACEBOOK PAGE? If you have choral news that you would like to share, such as festivals, concerts, or other significant choral events that would be of interest to Bay Area colleagues, please feel free to post it there or send me the information by email. (If you have photos/artwork, please send as a jpeg).
Please feel free to contact me with any questions, suggestions, or concerns you may have…how can I be helpful to you? How can I empower, support, and/or encourage you as you navigate the field of choral music? If I don’t know how to help I can probably point you in the direction of someone who can!
