The Percy Grainger Wind Band Festival is quickly becoming a classic event in Chicago. Since 2010, the concert finale of this event has featured some of the finest wind ensembles from across North America performing amazing renditions of Grainger's masterpieces for band. Today we're thrilled to announce that we are accepting applications for participation in next year's festival, which will take place March 3-4, 2017. Visit the festival website to learn how to join the event. Our vision for the festival is to celebrate the unique, beautiful, eccentric, fanciful, thrilling, haunting, and fun-loving music that only Grainger could have composed for band. This annual two-day event features four select wind ensembles performing as part of a matinee concert in Chicago's historic Orchestra Hall at Symphony Center - home of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Each ensemble also joins a noted band conductor for a personalized, one-on-one clinic in advance of the performance. Lastly, if you're in the area on March 7, 2016 or April 2, 2016, we're producing Grainger Festival performances on these dates - please order tickets and join us!
