Faculty in the News
Dr. Clark Roush, Professor of Music and Chair of the Division of Fine and Performing Arts was recently asked to join the board of the Nebraska Choral Directors Association as the Standards and Repertoire Chair for the Collegiate area. He will be representing college choir conductors and their programs to the board and be the board's liaison to the other collegiate choir directors in the state.
Early this summer, Roush was selected as a member of the editorial board of Melisma, the journal of the North Central American Choral Directors Association organization. This comes as a result of work Roush had submitted to the organization. Roush is the only representative of the state of Nebraska on this board.
“I am honored and humbled to become a more active part of this great organization,” said Roush who has been a member of the American Choral Directors Association for almost 20 years. The North Central ACDA represents North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin.
“To be part of helping craft the main communication avenue of NCACDA is a challenge and a new professional experience that excites me,” said Roush.
Dr. Roush is in his 21st year as conductor of the York College Concert Choir. He is active as a guest clinician, conductor, and adjudicator, and is a published author. He has twice addressed audiences at the state convention of the Nebraska Music Educators Association on various aspects of choral music education.
He and his wife Sue have two sons, Matthew (23), and Mitchell (19).
