Thanks to a generous grant from Dr Ann Rice and project GET Smart, all four Mesquite secondary music teachers will be attending the 73rd annual Midwest Band and Orchestra Clinic in Chicago, IL from Dec 17-21.  This is the biggest and most comprehensive music conference for instrumental music teachers in the country. The four will attend concerts, rehearsal labs, reading sessions, clinics, and explore exhibits featuring the newest and best in equipment, software, repertoire, literature, and much more.   Marie Palmer, Will Rhoden, Brittany Wagner, and Conrad Allen are excited to bring back best practices, new methods and repertoire and grateful for all the new learning opportunities they will experience.
