At the request of Perform International, director of choral studies Ryan Beeken will serve as artistic director and conductor for a newly created international choral festival titled A Cappella Abroad.
Recently, a cappella music has been popularized by media hits like The Sing-Off, the musical Perfect Harmony, and the musical comedy film series Pitch Perfect.
The A Cappella Abroad choral event, taking place in June 2018 in Prague, is dedicated to celebrate a cappella choral music and give ensembles the opportunity to perform traditional and modern compositions to an appreciative audience in some of Europe’s most splendid concert venues. Perform International will market the festival to over 10,000 choral professionals throughout Canada and the United States. Here are more details about the A Capella Abroad festival.
