Please join us on Thursday, December 12, 2013, 7:30 PM at Pick-Staiger Concert Hall (Evanston, IL) as the McCracken Middle School Symphonic Band presents its Midwest Clinic Preview Performance!
General Admission Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at our online ticket office.
Just recently the McCracken Middle School Symphonic Band received an invitation to present a concert at the 2013 Midwest Clinic this December. An invitation to Midwest is one of the most, if not the most, prestigious accomplishment a public school band could hope to achieve. Nearly 15,000 music educators from all 50 states, and over 30 countries attend the Midwest Clinic. We are honored to represent Skokie as one of only four middle school bands in the nation selected to perform. This Midwest invitation is a tribute to everyone who has been a part of the fine tradition of our band program.
We need your help! We have significant costs related to our Midwest Performance and preparations. Any contribution will go a long way towards making our Midwest Clinic performance a huge success!!! Please note that our concert programs for 12/12/13 and 12/18/13 have been sent to the printer.
"The McCracken School band has reached the heights of national and state acclaim and has brought great credit on the Village of Skokie and School District 73.5. These young musicians deserve our support and I hope the community also will support their efforts."
