The Midwest Clinic- the 67th Annual International Band and Orchestra Conference

For the past 66 years, musicians and educators of all skill levels have gathered in Chicago during the month of December for the largest music conference in the world.  The Midwest Clinic – An International Band and Orchestra Conference offers guests an array of clinics, concerts and exhibits.

Focusing on industry trends and future topics in music education, this impressive event provides the opportunity to hear great music and meet iconic teachers and performers.

As an exhibitor at the 67th annual clinic, the J.W. Pepper staff had the opportunity to meet thousands of music educators, students, administrators, composers, professional musicians and industry representatives at their Midwest booth.  Attendees enjoyed browsing through some of the newest and most innovative new materials available.
Tuning for Wind Instruments—A Roadmap to Successful Intonation
One of the highlights this year was the appearance of Dr. Shelley Jagow, Professor of Music at Wright State University, at the J.W. Pepper booth. Shelley graciously met and greeted teachers after her standing-room-only session, Tuning Winds and Brass—A Roadmap to Successful Intonation.  You may want to consider taking a look at her book, Tuning for Wind Instruments—A Roadmap to Successful Intonation (#10346285, $24.99).

Here are a few pics from our booth with Shelley Jagow and Robert Franzblau at their book signings.

J.W. Pepper is proud to be part of such a memorable experience!  We look forward to seeing you at The Midwest Clinic in December 2014!
