Chicago, Illinois
United States

The Midwest Clinic is an epic musical symposium and convention held every year in Chicago's McCormick Place which, if you didn't know, is the largest convention center in the United States. But in spite of its size, McCormick Place will be struggling to contain all of the musical talent inside of it the weekend of December 14-17. The mission and goals of the Clinic are a little too broad to be fully summarized here (check the website below!), but I will note that there are 3 performances relevant to our readers!

On Thursday, December 15 at 1:00 PM, the The Japan Tubists of the Japan Ground Self-Defense Force Central Band will be playing a brass program, including works by Gustav Holst and Itaru Sakai. Then, on Friday, December 16 at 5:30 PM, the L.V. Berkner High School Symphonic Band of Richardson Texas will be playing a long and wonderfully eccentric program, which includes the premier of the piece Anima Luminis by Wataru Hokoyama, composed in honor of the victims of last spring's earthquake and tsunami. Finally, on Saturday, December 17 at 11:30 AM, the Kunitachi College of Music Blasorchester, a brass ensemble from Tokyo, will be playing a wonderful program of brass selections old and new. All performances are at the convention center; registration and ticketing information can be found at the website below.

Date Wednesday, December 14 - Saturday, December 17
