We give thanks for Sister Veronica Ann Baxter (1928-2014), remembered for her innovative leadership of Marylhurst from 1974 to 1984, when the university transitioned to a co-educational college of lifelong learning.
Dr. Justin Smith, director of choral activities, was the featured clinician and judge for the first annual Clark College Choral Festival, held November 3, 2012 on the Clark College campus.
Dr. Smith was guest conductor and judge for a dozen high school choirs from Washington and Oregon.
The Clark College Fall Choral Festival is designed to promote the choral arts, with expert clinicians creating an encouraging atmosphere of learning. The festival is open to concert and chamber choirs, vocal jazz, show choirs and non-classical a cappella ensembles. The festival concludes with a showcase performance.
