Midwest Clinic, 2005

December 13, 2005 Uncategorized

This morning I head to Chicago for the annual band and orchestra bacchanale / geekfest known as The Midwest Clinic. This is the fifth year for the BCM booth (#325 – come see us!), and we’re going to mix it up a little bit this time with some spiffy new iPods in addition to the CD players of yore. We’ll see how it works out. I can picture a shuffle-play accident which leads to a dangerous medley of Ghost Train: mvt. II, Mr. Bungle’s “Stubb a Dub”, and Avenue X

Don’t miss Newman’s Metropolitan which opens the Chicago Youth Symphony Orchestra’s concert on Tuesday night, at 7:45. My own Dusk will be performed by the Atlanta Youth Wind Symphony on Thursday night at 7:30, and Eric and the Duncanville High School Wind Ensemble finish out the convention on Friday night with his new “Lux Aurumque.”

I’ll try to post stuff throughout the week over on the BCM blog, but we say we’ll do that each year and fail miserably. We need a full-time photographer/blogger to follow us around. On second thought, that’s a bad idea.

So, to everyone who’ll be at Midwest this year, come by and say ‘howdy.’ I fear I’ve suggested “let’s go for a drink” to an inordinately large number of people, so I’m bringing an extra liver this year…
