And while there are still choirs rehearsing, Education Director Ben Johns is still giving clinics. Earlier this week he went to the North Bay (around Santa Rosa) to visit some schools we don't yet know very well. Today he went over the Bay Bridge to Acalanes High School. We have a long history with them and their Director Bruce Lengacher. Ben listened to three songs they were preparing for the Golden State competition soon, and shared some of his ideas, particularly about an Indonesian piece to which the choir had added some movement. Ben is a trained dancer, as well as a singer, so he's especially attentive to choreography when it's added.
