CBB plays at the Midwest Clinic as a Chamber group

The Chicago Brass Band was honored and privileged to perform at the 65th Annual Midwest Clinic - An International Band and Orchestra Conference - WEBSITE - The last time a British style Brass Band performed at Midwest was in 2002.

The well appreciative audience of music educators and CBB family filled the Skyline Ballroom W375E of the McCormick Place Convention Center to the brim - as an estimated 800 attendees anxiously listened to the CBB.


This Midwest performance was designed to meet both the expectations of showcasing fine original material for brass band and serving the educational community. The CBB accomplished this task by selecting six original compositions; three are well known in their transcriptions for concert band and the other three provide historical significance and stylistic diversity for the audience, as well as showcase the variety and entertainment that the Chicago Brass Band brings to their concert audiences worldwide.

For those who missed this opportunity with Guest Conductor James Curnow and Guest Soloist Jens Lindemann, more detailed information about this incredible experience is below.

Thank you again to all in attendance as this was a great day for the Chicago Brass Band and the brass banding movement!
