Commissions

In 1996, as part of it its fiftieth-anniversary celebration, the Midwest Clinic commissioned two new works for band and orchestra. In 1998, the Board of Directors decided to make commissioning a regular feature of the Midwest Clinic. That year, the Commission Committee was formed to commission outstanding literature that is accessible to high school and middle school performers in band, jazz band, orchestra, and a variety of chamber ensembles. Each year, a different ensemble will be featured.

The Midwest Clinic is pleased to have the opportunity to serve music education with the addition of quality literature. We look forward to many more excellent compositions originating through this program and receiving their premieres at future Midwest Clinics.
