CLARENDON HILLS — Sixty-seven students in the Symphonic Band of Clarendon Hills Middle School recently participated in a clinic at McCormick Place West in Chicago.
Australian conductor Jemima Bunn led the clinic last month, titled “Making Ensemble Count: Strategies for a Curriculum-Based Approach.”
The clinic was one of dozens of events taking place as part of the 66th-annual Midwest Band and Orchestra Clinic, which welcomed more than 17,000 visitors for workshops, concerts and exhibits. The CHMS band participated in the event five years ago and was asked to return to help demonstrate the lessons that Bunn shared.
