Tarleton choral director to lead conference performance




Tuesday, May 26, 2020

STEPHENVILLE, Texas — Dr. Troy Robertson, director of choirs at Tarleton State University, has been invited to lead the performance of the plenary session of the American Choral Directors Association Leadership Conference on June 3.

“This is a completely unexpected opportunity to be of service to my profession,” Robertson said. “I couldn’t be more thankful that I can be of use during this time of crisis, and I can’t wait to hear all of these incredible musicians singing together!”

The conference, usually held in person, is slated for a virtual platform this year.

Robertson will write a short composition and lead all 50 state presidents, as well as the ACDA president and president-elect.

About 150 members of national leadership representing more than 22,000 choral directors will participate in the conference.
