  • The Midwest Clinic, annually held in Chicago since its inception in 1946, is the world’s largest instrumental music education conference. Now attended annually by an international audience of more than 17,000 music educators, students, and professionals, the conference began almost 70 years ago as a way to introduce directors to new repertoire for their ensembles. While much has changed with time, Midwest continues to honor its beginnings by presenting directors with this valuable resource through more than 40 concerts each year. Midwest Clinic concert programs present music at grade levels appropriate for a wide variety of ensembles, and balance new publications with more established compositions. Come learn more about the performance application process, programming expectations, as well as any inquiries you might have.
