High School

BorgesHello Everyone! I’m happy to serve as your High School Repertoire & Resources Representative for California ACDA. What does that mean? Good question–I know I never really knew what an “R&R Chair” was.

It’s my job to represent your interests as high school choral teachers, and particularly those things that ACDA is particularly good at. Things like repertoire for various ensembles and levels, programming and program concerns, and many of the day-to-day aspects that involve teaching high school choir.

If you have any questions about the above or anything particularly relating to your job, please don’t hesitate to email me. If I can’t help you, I’ll certainly do everything I can to find someone who can!

Thank you for this opportunity to serve!
