Midwest Clinic 2009
We had a wonderful time in Chicago.  We especially enjoyed the opportunity to meet so many clarinetists from around the country. Here are some of the photos that were taken at our booth.

Sketch drawing by Daniel Bonade, Clarinetist with The Cleveland Orchestra, done during a rehearsal.  Sometime later when Theodore Johnson was to perform the same piece of music, the sketch was found on the inside cover.  Based on the Ein Heldenleben Tone Poem, it depicts Richard Strauss in "A Heroes Life."  He travels the life of a hero to his grave.  Upon reaching Heaven, he is met by his wife who proceeds to kick him either out or to his senses.
