ICDA North Central District

ICDA North Central District

Welcome to the North Central District of I.C.D.A.! My name is Deb Hild and this is the second year I will be serving as your representative.  I love the first day of school! It’s the most optimistic day of the year. I believe that every kid that walks into the front door of our schools wants this to be their very best year. On this day, I believe they really do want to please us. And on this day, I’m at my most optimistic as well!  Just think of all the kids you’re going to get into Opus or all-state this year! Think of the outstanding concerts, musicals and programs you are going to have this year! Think of all the 1s your singers will earn at small and large group contest this year! Keep dreaming! It’s going to be a great year!

Thank you for all you do for music in your schools.  See the list below for the dates of events in our district this year. Please call me or send an email if you have any questions. I look forward to hearing from you and working with you!

North Central District Representative
