Our WCDA leadership is ready to serve you as well. You can email them through the WCDA website:

 I constantly feel we are the “rugged optimists” in the world of education - wearing the brave face for all our singers and planning for events that may or may not occur.  But even the bravest choral servants will eventually tire, and need to rest.  I hope you all find a moment to rest.  In that moment of release - I hope that you can begin anew and rekindle your love for choral music.  In the words of our president, “Be encouraged, my friends. You are intelligent, hard-working, creative, and profoundly dedicated to your singers.”  Join us at the 2021 Summer Conference to find that rejuvenation we all need along the way!

Wishing you all calm and rest with a hope of refreshed optimism,


Paul Gregg
Refresh! Program Chair
