Ryan Beeken, director of choral studies, served as the headlining clinician for the 2019 Anchorage Large Group Choral Festival.
Each year a clinician is brought to Alaska to work with music ensembles and teachers. The Anchorage school district is the same size as the state of Delaware!
Beeken visited 19 Middle and High School Buildings and worked with choral programs. He provided suggestions for improvement and set goals for future growth and development. In addition, Beeken adjudicated three evening festivals where choral ensembles performed for written and verbal feedback and ultimately for a rating.
