Festival of Trumpets
The 45th Annual International Trumpet Guild Conference
The Hyatt Regency Orange County • Garden Grove, CA • 6.01.21 – 6.05.21
Are you attending the 2021 ITG Conference in Grove City, California?
Consider participating in the Festival of Trumpets concert, which will be held on Saturday, June 5, 2021.
The 2019 Festival of Trumpets Concert was a big success and we are continuing with some of the ideas we experimented with and are included some suggestions you offered.
Again this year we are allowing for participants to pre-organized their own trumpet ensemble. These ensemble will get the chance to have two rehearsals at the conference and perform on the Festival of Trumpets concert. Some ideas for forming an ensemble include: trumpet professors from a certain region, alumni from a specific teacher/school, baroque trumpet ensemble, a group of friends you like to perform with, etc.
For the second year in a row we will have the ITG Conference Undergraduate Trumpet Ensemble. No audition is required and students will get to perform on the Festival of Trumpets Concerts directed by Dr. Aaron Witek. This is an exciting opportunity for students to meet each other and perform at the conference.
A new option for performers is to request how many pieces they would like to perform. We have found some people would like to play as much as possible and some people are limited due to their involvement in other activities at the conference.
Historically, the Festival of Trumpets concert was created to allow university trumpet professors to “present” at an international conference, allowing them to petition their universities for financial support.
Adult non-professional and comeback trumpet players are encouraged to participate.
Rehearsals for these ensembles will take place throughout the week. Please make arrangements to be available for the full conference should you want to perform in the Festival of Trumpets.
APPLICATION DEADLINE: January 15th, 2021
