Past Concert

Programs

The South Jersey Choral Directors' Association has a proud history of serving students and music educators of Region III South Jersey since 1958.  The founding members of the Association were:

Florian Douglas (Clearview High School)

Nelson Muschek (Audubon High School)

Jane M. Stetler (Merchantville Schools)

Edgard C. Thomas, Jr. (Hightstown Schools)

Edgard L. Wallace (Collingswood High School)


In addition, these founders enjoyed the support and cooperation of many of their colleagues in Southern New Jersey who saw the clear need for an organization of this caliber.  The Founders Scholarship honors those members who first envisioned the establishment of this organization and all who have served the Association since it was founded in 1958.

SJCDA was originally cooperatively affiliated with the South Jersey Bandmasters' Association, performing combined concerts of orchestral and choral music.
