Catawba College was the only private college in the state that was selected to perform at the conference.  Other choirs performing were from ECU, WCU, and UNC Charlotte, a high school, a church, and a state treble choir.

Members of ACDA are dedicated to the highest standards of the Choral Arts, and seek to promote the best in choral music.

Catawba's Chamber Choir is directed by Dr. Phillip E. Burgess, Director of Choral Activities and accompanied by Susan Trivette, pianist.

On October 23, Dr. Burgess will direct the High School Honors Chorus division of Moore County's All County Chorus.  Burgess was selected following the Catawba Singers' tour to Moore County last spring, one of several to visit various high schools in the state.
