2022 TCDA Elementary Honor Choir

We are pleased to announce the 2022 TCDA Elementary Honor Choir, under the direction of Dr. Angela Kasper.

Dr. Angela Kasper teaches at Western Washington University where she conducts three choirs and teaches undergraduate courses in choral methods and global vocal traditions. Before this appointment, she was Director of Choral Activities at the University of St. Thomas for 20 years during which time her choirs performed at national, regional, and state conventions of the American Choral Directors Association. In addition to her university responsibilities, Dr. Kasper presents for national, regional, and state conventions of the ACDA, the National Association for Music Education, the Organization of American Kodály Educators, and the American Orff-Schulwerk Association. She has served as guest conductor for numerous honor choirs including the ACDA National Children’s Honor Choir, as well as for ACDA honor choirs all over the nation and internationally.  A well-published author, she has written articles for the Choral Journal, the Orff Echo, and the Music Educators Journal and has co-authored a book with Mary Goetze and Ruth Boshkoff, Educating Young Singers, and published with GIA.  This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for your students, and an incredible opportunity to work with the wonderful master teacher, Dr. Angela Kasper.

Elementary Honor Choir results were sent out via email on Tuesday, April 19th.  See the link below for the list of students accepted into the Elementary Honor Choir.
