The Percy Grainger Wind Band Festival Performance in Orchestra Hall at Symphony Center was something that none of us will ever forget. The trip was a highlight of my 35 year teaching career. The students commented that this trip would be something they would always remember and cherish. I have never seen so many smiling faces as I did throughout the trip. I was really happy that we were able to attend the performance of the Chicago Symphony on Saturday right after our festival performance. This was “icing on the cake” for us. A terrific experience for all involved. The students and I were also thrilled with Col. [Arnald] Gabriel, the clinic, and with Buntrock Hall.

The MCI team I worked with was very accommodating and professional in every way. Our stay [at the Palmer House Hilton] could not have been better! Everything about the trip could not have been better!
