In 1963, the Japan Choral Directors Association (JCDA) prompted developments that have been of benefit across the choral world, through the unity of choir conductors and advancement of technique.

All its energies have been devoted to nurturing a flourishing choral world for our nation, and much has been achieved through the organization of all kinds of concerts, study groups, lectures, seminars, and a variety of activities such as the publishing of musical scores and other materials. We would like to expand these activities further to contribute to both the wider world of music and to society in general, and thus undertake a significant role in the world's music scene.
