If you’ll be in Chicago for the Midwest Clinic this week, please come see us at the Music for All booth, Booth #1531! Several of our staff will be there to greet you with friendly smiles and hellos, and we will have lots of great materials available, including the 2019 Bands of America Championship Schedule and Application, 2019 Music for All Summer Symposium promotional materials, and application packets for the 2020 Music for All National Festival!
