NCCO exists to serve the specific needs of university and collegiate conductors, choral faculty, and music students. As written in our Constitution’s second article, NCCO serves its stakeholders by, amongst other things:

  • Fostering the discovery of new research and scholarship and presenting it through publication to the membership;
  • Encouraging the creation of new compositions for collegiate choruses through … publishing; and
  • Advocating for the value of our profession and its members through … publishing….

Our publications, therefore, range widely and include webinars, advocacy & pedagogy resources, choral music publications, and a scholarly journal.
