The ACDA student chapter on campus is comprised of student music educators who will become teachers themselves. The performers participate by invitation, Schwartzhoff said.
Annelieus Slack, a senior from Park Falls and president of the ACDA student chapter at UW-Eau Claire, said besides hosting the ACDA Concert, they have speakers come to their weekly meetings.
"ACDA is a professional music organization with over 18,000 members nationally," Slack said. "Our student chapter is part of the organization."
There are 12-20 students who are members of the UW-Eau Claire chapter, she said.

Handel, "An den Vetter" by F.J. Haydn, "Hello Girls" by Lloyd Pfautsch, "In the Still of the Night" by Cole Porter and "Over the Rainbow" by Harold Arlen. Rosolack is an associate professor of music and theatre arts. Ondra Williams will assist the Women's Concert Chorale on piano.

The final group to perform will be the Chippewa Valley Boy Choir, conducted by Karen Radix. It will perform "Alleluia" by Johann Bach and Ruth Artman, "Goliath" by Paul J. Williams and Gilbert Martin, "Amazing Grace" arranged by John Coates and "A Zinga-Za" arranged by Mary Geotze.
