The Choral Scholar & American Choral Review
The Choral Scholar and American Choral Review, the journal of the National Collegiate Choral Organization, seeks to innovate through the production and the publication of choral scholarship in service to the choral community. This digital publication intersects the topics of conducting, pedagogy, musicology, music theory, critical theory, and other disciplines to create a comprehensive scope of the 21st-century collegiate choral field. As part of the organization’s commitment to access, equity, and inclusion, the editorial board of the journal welcomes a broad array of topics and formats, including columns, interviews, peer-reviewed articles, and other forms of scholarly expression.
During Summer 2020, the NCCO received custody of American Choral Review from Chorus America, Inc. The merged The Choral Scholar & American Choral Review began Fall 2020, with Vol. 58, No. 3, adopting the numbering system of the antecedent publication.
