The Virginia Choral Directors Association submitted a proposal to the VBODA President and President-Elect in September of 2013 to combine the All-Virginia Chorus, Orchestra, and Bands into one weekend event for a trial period of three years. The All-Virginia Chorus date would be moved to the All-Virginia Bands and Orchestra date for 2017 (April 6-8). The five concerts of this combined event would be held at the Altria Theater in Richmond on Saturday; housing would be in hotels including the Richmond Marriott, and would be coordinated by the VCDA. This information was first presented to the VBODA Executive Board in June, 2014. At its November meeting, the VBODA Executive Board directed that the membership be surveyed for their input on this proposal.
The third VBODA Adjudicator Training Session will be held at the Sheraton Waterside in the MERRIMAC ROOM on Wednesday, November 19, from 6:00pm to 9:00pm. Topics included will cover aspects of Instrumental Music Performance Adjudication with listening selections, group discussion and the dynamics of concert adjudication. This training is presented for both band and orchestra directors. Future sessions will be held in April 2015 and November 2015.
