Symphonic Band at the Midwest Clinic 2023

December 22, 2023 @ 10:30 am - 11:45 am

This will be the 77th annual performance of the VanderCook College of Music Symphonic Band at the Midwest International Band and Orchestra Conference. As one of the founders, VanderCook is the only ensemble that has performed at every clinic since 1946.

This year’s performance includes repertoire by Biedenbender, Markowski, Owens, Reed, Sheldon, Karl King, and many more.
We welcome guest conductors Rodney Dorsey, Rebecca Phillips, and Robert Sheldon.

In addition to performing annually, VCM students also help run the event behind the scenes as ushers and set-up crew workers throughout the week.
