Promoting excellence in choral music throughout Ohio.

OCDA strives to provide its membership and all choral musicians access to high quality choral repertoire that cross all genres and ability levels. OCDA provides several reading sessions during its annual summer conference and the Ohio Music Education Association’s annual professional development conference.
