Two-Year College

Welcome to the Community College Repertoire & Resources page

Covid-19 has changed the landscape of how we have been working with our ensembles. We are challenged to find ways to teach in the midst of varying restrictions from our local health departments and district administrations. In the summer of 2020, we are all looking for options and ideas.

But we also have an opportunity to create completely new ways of working in the choral art forms. The Black Lives Matter movement is reaching all of our communities, and we are challenged to look at all of our immediate plans through an equity lens so that we serve all of our students.

ACDA National and the Western Region of the ACDA have compiled resources that may be useful for your planning: ACDA National resource
