The Mackinac Music Clinic promotes musical growth and enrichment for choirs, bands and orchestras without rankings or ratings. Surrounded by majestic Lake Huron, and lodged in a state park recognized by National Geographic as one of the top ten in America, this educational music festival allows students to focus on their individual skill level and concentrate their efforts on reaching a higher plane of musical excellence. Step back in time to an authentic Victorian setting where transportation is limited to horse and buggy, bicycle or foot and give your young musicians the opportunity to receive instruction provided by professional musicians and/or university clinicians and private group sessions.
