The Colleyville Middle School (CMS) Honors Band has been invited to perform at the 72 annual Midwest International Orchestra and Band Clinic and Conference, held from December 19-22, 2018, in Chicago, Illinois.

“To be selected to perform at the Midwest Clinic is an honor because it places the CMS band program among the elite in the nation,” David Zahrndt, GCISD Director of Fine Arts, said.  “Our students and directors work every day in the pursuit of excellence, and an invitation to perform for the prestigious Midwest Clinic is a clear result of their day to day commitment.”
