Canadian Receptions at Midwest Clinic

Are you heading to Chicago this December?​

The Midwest Clinic International Band, Orchestra and Music Conference offers guests interested in music education an array of clinics and exhibits, as well as access to music and teaching icons. The conference will also focus on industry trends and future topics in business and music education. With more than 17,000 attendees from all 50 states and more than 30 countries, The Midwest Clinic offers music educators and musicians alike an unmatched networking opportunity.

What began in 1946 as 120 music directors meeting for six hours in a Chicago YWCA gym has now become the annual four-day music band and orchestra conference known as The Midwest Clinic International Band, Orchestra and Music Conference. For over 70 years, musicians, educators and people passionate about music education of all skill levels have gathered in Chicago for the largest music conference of its kind.

Canadian Receptions:  Each year a number of Canadian Band enthusiasts find their way to the Chicago Midwest Clinic.  One thing that each of us have in common is that we tend to gather in groups, mingle, and socialize.  Great events annually are always the receptions organized by various groups.  In an effort to help get the word out and help folks who are attending this annual clinic, the CBA is dedicating this page for receptions being organized each year.  As details develop they will be posted here so that everyone can quickly find the details in a universal location. 

This year there are receptions being organized for you to attend, see colleagues, network,

and socialize with Canadian Band Directors from coast to coast. 

As Details become available, we will update this page.

Hope to see you there.
