As in past years, I’m headed up to Chicago for the Midwest Band & Orchestra Clinic.  This is an incredible international event that is attended every year by over 100 Indiana Band & Orchestra directors.  Professional development, student performances, new music, old friends – this is an annual tradition worth celebrating.  That it happens at Christmastime in Chicago can be both a blessing and a curse!  From what I can tell, the weather is going to cooperate for safe travels and the chance to enjoy a little of the winter magic in downtown Chicago.

I’ll report back after the New Year with all the new and exciting things I find!  Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
