2006 marks the 60th anniversary of the Midwest Clinic – an International Band and Orchestra Conference (www.midwestclinic.com). From its humble genesis as one-day event held at a Chicago YWCA to its present-day status as a five-day, multi-venue symposium, The Midwest Clinic has been consistent in its aim to expose music educators to effective teaching techniques, as well as new products and published music.

SBO recently spoke with Ray E. Cramer and Kelly Jocius, president and executive director of The Midwest Clinic, respectfully, about the organization’s milestone, their own feelings about the clinic, and what the future may hold.
