Nine students from UNLV recently attended the 2015 American Choral Directors Association (ACDA) National Conference in Salt Lake City, UT. They attended guest lectures, reading sessions, exhibits, and concerts, featuring national and international choral ensembles ranging from children's choirs to professional ensembles.
Most notably, fifth-year student Faustino Solis represented UNLV by placing as a Semi-Finalist at the ACDA Undergraduate Conducting Competition. Faustino was one of nine semi-finalists chosen from over 200 video applications from across the country.
In attendance at the conference were undergraduates Ysabella Catu, Mark McCreery, Donovan Crespo, Jordan Madagame, Gianni Becker, Olivia Sirota, Faustino Solis, Cody Stover, and graduate student Suzanne Stone. Attendance was made possible by financial support from the UNLV Department of Music, UNLV CSUN, and the ACDA Nevada State Chapter and National Office.
