Beeken collaborated with colleagues from Colorado State University, the University of Missouri, and Ithaca College to share thoughts on honoring the diversity of our choral culture through human connection. These pathways included: creating community within the choral ensemble; partnering with other choral ensembles; encouraging a broader sense of humanity and responsibility through service- or social justice-minded projects; collaborating with choral composers; creating a safe rehearsal atmosphere; and relating to administrators via informed, practical assessment.
