December is here and we all know what that means… bright lights, cheerful spirits, fresh pine, and THE MIDWEST CLINIC!

Most of us probably think a little differently about the month of December.  However, those who work with bands, orchestras, or music programs know that attending this prestigious conference IS like Christmas morning for musicians.


What is The Midwest Clinic?

Midwest is the largest instrumental music education conference in the world.  For more than 70 years, it’s been a forum for the finest ensemble performances, expert presentations, and the most current trends in the industry.  Nearly 17,000 participants from around the globe come together for more than 50 clinics, 90 concerts, new music reading sessions, and noted experts in the music field.

When and Where is it?

The Midwest Clinic International Band, Orchestra and Music Conference started in Chicago more than 75 years ago.  It’s still held there today!

This year’s conference will run from December 19-22, 2022, at McCormick Place.

Who Should Attend?

ANYONE with an interest in music should go!  Grade school and high school music students, directors, instrumental teachers, composers and arrangers, music industry representatives, college program participants, instructors, and administrators are just a handful of recommended participants.
