T'was the night before the annual Midwest Clinic, when all through the City, not a song was playing; it was certainly a pity. By morning the doors opened for all those who dared, to enter and enjoy music filling the air. When from within the exhibit hall there rose such a roar, as guests hurried to know what it could possibly be for. What to their eyes would they possibly see, but World Championship DVD sales and more DCI items absolutely for FREE!

This week (Wednesday, Dec. 15 to Saturday, Dec. 19) the 63rd annual Midwest Clinic, an International Band and Orchestra Conference, will take place in Chicago at the McCormick Place Convention Center. Throughout the week, attendees will enjoy exciting musical performances, educational sessions and an exclusive tradeshow filled with more than 1,200 music organizations and companies.

Among the crowd at the tradeshow, guests will be able to visit with Drum Corps International staff members, check out the 2010 DCI Tour schedule, watch the latest 2009 World Championship performances, and take advantage of our extraordinary Midwest Clinic prices on their favorite DCI merchandise.

On-site discounts include $20 off the 2009 and 2008 World Championship DVDs, and special "Buy 2 get one for $1" deals on other DVD sets including the popular Legacy Collection. Plus, DCI staff will be giving away our brand new 2010 calendar posters and logo decals to those who join our exclusive fan mailing list. Sign up on our computerized kiosks and you'll also be entered to win the ultimate "Super Fan" travel bag filled with DCI T-shirts, CDs, '09 World Championship DVDs, and more.

So swing by to say hello, pick up your calendar, and get those last minute gifts for someone's wish list or your own! The Drum Corps International booth is located right off the main aisle toward the rear of the exhibit hall (booth 578).
