NextDirection is a summer conference for high school and college students who are excited to learn more about choral education as a career. 

WCDA has postponed the 2021 summer conference because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.  We look forward to a robust conference in summer 2022!

About (Mission Statement)
Because WCDA believes so strongly in the value of music and its role in the elevation of the human spirit, NextDirection was created to bring together the brightest, most dynamic young people to consider a career in choral music.
Teaming passionate, like-minded students with our professions’ finest nationally/internationally renowned choral leaders, they experience motivating rehearsals, discussions, and significant insight into the choral art.

Through this significant, process-oriented exploration of the choral music profession, participants will gain a clearer vision of possibilities for their musical future.
