Ryan Beeken, director of Choral Studies, presented an invited clinic at the Pennsylvania American Choral Directors Association annual conference, held in Elizabethtown, Pa., on August 5–6, 2013.

Beeken’s presentation, “No Choir Left Behind: Programming Masterworks for Any Choir,” addressed the many challenges choral directors face in selecting and performing quality choral-orchestral repertoire. Beeken introduced fellow conductors to a variety of accessible repertoire from the colonial Americas, including works from Peru, Venezuela, Mexico, Bolivia, Brazil, Columbia, and the music of the Moravians.
