Salem Choir to Perform at National Conference

March 7, 2013
Palmetto Voices on stage, Dr. Sonja Sepulveda conducting

The Palmetto Voices, a choral group comprised of Salem College choral director Dr. Sonja Sepulveda's present Salem College Choir students, as well as her alumni singers from several other institutions, will perform at the American Choral Directors Association National Conference on March 12-16, 2013, in Dallas, Texas. The group will perform in the Cathedral Shrine of the Virgin of Guadalupe during the Music in Worship Ecumenical Service.

More than 250 ensembles from around the world applied for a coveted performance slot at the ACDA conference and only 40 were chosen to be a part of this world-class event. The honor of being a part of ACDA is similar to that of being selected to participate in the Olympics.

Dr. Sepulveda remarked upon revealing the news to the Palmetto Voices, "some conductors would do anything to be chosen to be a part of this convention. We are blessed."

Dr. Sepulveda recently appeared on WFDD's (NPR affiliate) "Triad Arts" program to talk about the upcoming performance. Click here for the interview.
