The Midwinter Clinic is MMEA’s annual professional development conference. The state’s largest gathering of music educators features nationally-recognized headliners, a wide variety of performances and informances, sessions from area clinicians, an Exhibit Hall, and tons of networking.
My name is Erin Holmes and I am the Director of Bands at Farmington High School in Farmington, MN. Our Wind Ensemble has been selected to perform at Minnesota Music Educators Association (MMEA) for our Mid-Winter Clinic. The title of our program is called Unrest. Here is a description of our program:
“Less than six months into the year, 2020 has proven to be a challenging environment not only for learners and musicians – but for our nation as a whole. Through music, our program will honestly reflect the unique challenges of a world placed at a standstill as the result of a pandemic, while also addressing the open wounds of our country’s continued struggle with equity and justice.”
In a world overcome with agitation, “Unrest” will also serve to heal: to be a manifesto for comfort, hope, and peace in an uncertain world. Our program aims to bring people together around music – and a common social cause.
Program will include Give Us This Day, Mvt. 2.
