Ryan Beeken, director of Choral Studies at IUP, recently returned from guest conducting festivals in Iowa and Ohio.
Beeken served as the headliner for the Ohio State University’s Vocal Arts Showcase. His work included serving as clinician for three high school programs, guest conducting an honor choir on the OSU campus, and interacting with graduate conducting students and the OSU Chorale.
Directly from Ohio, Beeken traveled to Des Moines, Iowa, where he worked extensively with two nationally recognized high school programs. This work culminated in a concert featuring an ensemble from each school and combined performances under Beeken’s direction.
