One of the highlights of our 2009-2010 season was our trip to the 2009 Midwest Clinic in Chicago, culminating in our performance at McCormick Place West on December 18, 2009.

The Midwest folks have been kind enough to publish these three selections from our performance:

Carnival, by Paul Basler

Hold This Boy and Listen, by Carter Pann
