Welcome to ITG 2014!
Mark your calendar for the 39th Annual Conference of the International Trumpet Guild to be held at the beautiful Valley Forge Casino Resort. Located in historic Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, the Resort boasts 7 on-site restaurants, fitness center, spa, and an abundance of overnight accommodations. We have endeavored to take advantage of the greater Philadelphia region while setting the conference in a suburban locale that is easy to reach by air, car, and rail.
Each day will be filled with clinics and recitals that will feature legendary artists as well as some new names that will be sure to dazzle. Every evening has its own captivating line up of concerts featuring an array of both classical and jazz soloists. And if you have a desire to stay up late, there’s the nightly jam sessions, test your luck in the Valley Forge Casino, or ride the mechanical bull at Deuce’s Wild.
In addition to the Conference site, there are plenty of opportunities to educate and rejuvenate with local attractions ranging from historical Valley Forge and Philadelphia, to Longwood Gardens, fine dining at local restaurants, and an amazing shopping experience in America’s second largest retail mall, King of Prussia.
The 2104 ITG Conference will be one for the history books, so join us for a truly “revolutionary” event in Valley Forge!

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. You must be a current member of ITG and logged into the Member Site to access this content. http://members.trumpetguild.org/content/brass-world-archives
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!
