Dear ACDA-PA members,
We want to thank all those who attended tonight’s panel, “Justice and Equity in your Choral Spaces”. It was a wonderful discussion, filled with thoughtful and practical advice. Thank you to each of our panelists for your wisdom and for taking time to share it with us.
In this technological age, online security is always a concern. Unfortunately, we encountered a situation this evening where our session was hijacked by offensive content. We immediately ended the session and canceled the Virtual Happy Hour.
Although the situation was out of our control, we would like to sincerely apologize for any distress this has caused. In the future, we will work diligently to better secure our state-wide offerings, while continuing to offer vital and valuable programming to the ACDA-PA membership.
Thank you again for your support.
