David Fryling is Associate Professor of Music and Director of Choral Studies
at Hofstra University, where he conducts the Hofstra Chorale, Hofstra
Chamber Choir, and teaches undergraduate and graduate Choral Conducting and
Literature. He spends his summers as Coordinator of Voice Programs,
Conductor of the World Youth Honors Choir and the Festival Choir & Orchestra
at the Interlochen Summer Arts Camp.
An active guest conductor, clinician and adjudicator of professional, community, and public school choirs, recent engagements include numerous all-state, regional, district, and county honor choir festivals, master classes, and workshops in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Louisiana, Texas, Utah and Alaska.
In his service to ACDA, Dr. Fryling has been NY State R&S Chair for Colleges and Universities, Eastern Division R&S Chair for Youth and Student Activities, and is currently Choirs Chair for the 2012 Eastern Division Conference.
Dr. Fryling believes that ACDA’s vital artistic and educational leadership position springs from its ability both to be inspired by and to inspire its membership. “We the People,” as a recent division conference reminded us, are accountable for continuing our critical human-centered missions: Invite every child and adult to sing; Mentor the young and future choral leaders in our midst; and Engage our greater community in making meaning out of our art.
