Brian Evans
ITG2010 Host
I am very proud that Sydney and Australia will be the site for the 35th Annual International Trumpet Guild Conference. As the first ITG Conference to be held in the Southern Hemisphere, this could well be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for delegates from all parts of the world.

I'm looking forward to seeing you at ITG 2010!
