Recognized Directors
A few years ago we started a program in the M-AD to recognize any chorus directors who have served as the front-line director of our M-AD chapters for at least 10 years. Since then with your help, we have compiled a list of Directors who fit that criteria.

For a few years now, we have made a presentation to the directors at the chorus contest at the M-AD Fall Convention. So far we have publicly recognized 114 men and women for their musical contributions to the District and to your chapters.

If you know of any else who deserves our recognition, please send the proper information to us. Details for eligibility and submission can be found on the CDD Director Recognition page.

If you know of any errors or updates in this list, please report them to Glenn Phillips.
