Annual Alumni Reception Moves to February 2017




With this year’s 70th anniversary celebration of the Midwest Clinic, the Midwest is hosting a 70th anniversary banquet and celebration at the Chicago Hilton Hotel and Towers.  The event will begin at 7:00 pm.  Since the VanderCook Symphonic Band Concert concludes at 5:45 pm and the banquet begins at 7:00 pm, the Alumni Board has decided to move the alumni reception to coincide with VanderCook’s annual Spring Alumni Appreciation Concert. 

The Alumni Appreciation Concert will be in its third year and will be held on Sunday, February 26, 2017.  This has been a very fun and successful day and about 100 alumni have joined us and participated in the band, orchestra and choral concert.

The event begins at noon with rehearsals and the concert is held at 3:00 pm with a reception immediately following.  Music is sent to participating alumni in advance and the alumni join forces with the VanderCook undergraduate ensembles to present a very special program.

Alumni and friends are encouraged to mark your calendars and join us on Sunday, February 26, 2017 for our third annual Alumni Appreciation Concert.
