February 20-22, 2020 in Chicago, IL. Hosted by Professor Erica Neidlinger and DePaul University. Our event will feature eleven exemplary performing ensembles, thought-provoking clinics, and the continuation of our mini-conducting symposium. I am particularly pleased to welcome Professor James Smith, Emeritus Director of Orchestras at the University of Wisconsin-Madison as our conducting symposium clinician. With great enthusiasm we welcome J. Eric Wilson, Director of Bands at Baylor University, who will serve as the conductor of our Intercollegiate Band. This years’ conference will also feature a video session of and for our CBDNA marching colleagues.
