ASU will hold the annual High School Vocal Connection (VoCo) on Saturday, September 18, 2021 from approximately 9 a.m. to approximately 3 p.m. ASU expects to be fully in person in the fall, so we are planning an on-campus event. In addition, we hope to provide some streaming options for both you and your students if coming to campus isn’t an option.

In order to help us plan, please complete this form ( anytime over the summer. We’ll send a separate reservation form in August; this one is just to give us an idea of how many people to expect. It also gives you a chance to let us know what you find helpful. Completing this form also ensures that you’ll receive all future communications about VoCo.

We are working now on designing the day. As in the past, we envision activities with the choral faculty, the voice faculty, and input from musical theatre, music therapy, and music learning and teaching. We’ll have special sessions for teachers, including a reading session. We hope you and your students will come away inspired and energized!

Best wishes from all at ASU for a healthy, restful, and restorative summer. See you in September!

Dear ACE Constituents, The Arizona Choral Educators leadership has met and come to the decision that all fall activities will be suspended for 2020.  This difficult decision was not made in haste and has the best interests of students, teachers, and community members at heart.  This means that the Fall Festival and All-State Jazz & Show Choir auditions will not take place.   In the coming weeks, we will be working to build virtual offerings in collaboration with AzACDA and AMEA.  During this time, we would like to hear back from you as to how ACE can better serve you.  We will be creating a HUB on the ACE website where we can routinely gather feedback from you, our constituents.   In the coming months, we will continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and will plan accordingly for the spring events that are calendared.   Thank you, Arizona Choral Educators
