Last week I attended the Midwest Band and Orchestra Clinic in Chicago. This is an annual event that I won't miss. This Chicago event is also a kind of reward for 'surviving' the semester....a great reward, I think. Besides the fact that there are terrific concerts to attend, I get to see alot of good friends. I always look forward to seeing Pam at the Claude T. Smith Publ booth at the exhibits. I also enjoyed introducing a student (now former student - he just graduated) to the Chicago - Midwest experience. I so appreciated my mentors introducing these kind of events to me, so it was my pleasure to do the same for one of my students. By the way, downtown Chicago is beautiful at Christmastime. Can't wait for Midwest 2008.
