5/23/18 - Hello from Texas!

Author: Ann Victor,

Greetings from the Stephen F. Austin Orchestra! Under the tutelage of Ann Victor and Ryan Demkovich, we are thrilled to be performing at the 2018 Midwest Clinic! After countless hours spent rehearsing in order to be able to experience this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, we are truly overjoyed to be among those selected to perform. Even though it was a very difficult struggle to reach where we are today, every second that we invested into this program was completely worth it. With the strength of our combined talents, we are super stoked to present a concert that will display the heart and soul of our orchestra. We look forward in anticipation to perform for the Midwest audience!

Round Rock celebrates it's selection to Midwest

Author: Sandra Vandertulip,

The orchestra and band students at Round Rock High School are thrilled their Symphony will be performing at Midwest! The excitement is growing as travel plans and music selections are being made. On Monday, May 14, 2018, Congressman John Carter's contingency will present A Listers and Educators Awards to the directors, Sandra Vandertulip and David Mobley and all the students who were selected to perform at Midwest! What an honor!

Italy at The Midwest Clinic 2018!

Author: Armando Saldarini,

What an honour having been selected as a performing group at the Midwest Clinic!
Last time an Italian band performed at Midwest was in 1998, twenty years ago. Our wish is to underline the musical connections between our countries by proposing music by Italian and Italian-American composers. Furthermore, 2018 is the anniversary of the end of World War I. Thanks to our music, we would like to pay tribute to the thousands of young Americans who died in the name of freedom and democracy.
We can't wait to be in Chicago next December! Greetings from Italy!
