Rich and Valerie Stoelzel, 2013 conference hosts, will dedicate this year's conference to one of the all time greats and masters of the trumpet, the one and only Adolph "Bud" Herseth.
ITG2013 has commissioned composer James Stephenson, to compose a new composition for trumpet and strings that will be premiered at the conference in memory of Mr. Herseth. Information on the trumpeter who will perform this premier will be forthcoming in the next few weeks.
The final concert featuring trumpet "All Stars" with trumpet great Arturo Sandoval will also be dedicated to Mr.Herseth. The concert will open with testimonials to Mr. Herseth by former colleagues and friends.
Lets make this conference the biggest and most successful to date, in honor of a music and trumpet legend, never to be forgotten, Adolph "Bud" Herseth.

THE BRASS WORLD ONLINE
Thanks to editor and publisher Robert Weast, ITG has been granted reproduction rights to the complete run of The Brass World, a publication that ran for nine years between 1965 and 1974, terminating publication just before ITG began publishing its own newsletters and journals. ITG is in the process of scanning these rich and informative publications into user-friendly PDF files, and the first three years (minus a few missing components we're still seeking) have been posted and are ready for download! You'll find them in the Content area of the ITG Member Web Site.
The scans in these PDF files are in high enough resolution to be printed at good quality, if desired. And like the ITG Journal PDF files, they contain active bookmarks and links, and can even be searched for text of interest. Be sure to monitor this section of the site, as new issues will be posted here as they are completed!
