Welcome to the ITG website. It is my pleasure, on behalf of the ITG Board of Directors, to welcome you. 

The International Trumpet Guild is an organization comprised of all sorts of trumpet enthusiasts.We come in all shapes, sizes and colors. We are all at differing levels of proficiency and cover every musical genre imaginable. Our mission is to promote and foster communication among trumpeters worldwide and to improve the artistic level of every aspect of the instrument. 

Our quarterly journals are dedicated to all things trumpet and cover many topics and include all sorts of regular columns. The guild co-sponsor and administer international solo trumpet and jazz trumpet competitions and host an annual conference with a dedicated youth day. We also have a growing Affiliate Chapter program, with ITG workshops in many parts of the world. We commission and premiere many new works for the trumpet and provide many other services, available on our website, the member website and in the journal itself.  And then there are: free music, free CDs, music downloads and so much more.

How does all this happen? We have a dedicated staff and many, many volunteers that provide this for all of us. What you will find on this website barely scratches the surface of what ITG has to offer you as a member. The Journal, the ITG Member Site, music, CDs, music downloads, a Smartmusic discount and new files and a downloadable collection of all journal back issues await you.

We hope to see you here often; there is much to see.  I also hope to hear from you, with your comments and suggestions.

Alan Siebert, President

Attending the 2015 ITG Conference?  Consider participating in the "Festival of Trumpets" concert, which will be held on Saturday, May 30 from 4:30 - 5:45 pm.  Historically, the FOT concert was created to allow university trumpet professors to “present” at an international conference, allowing them to petition their universities for financial support. Non-professional trumpet players are also encouraged to participate, and will be directed by David Brown on a piece being written espeically for this ensemble.  The FOT concert remains a highlight of the conference, and can feature guest soloists, guest conductors, and the premier of new works for trumpet ensemble.  If you are interested in playing on the Festival of Trumpets concert please fill out the registration HERE and email or mail it to Kevin Eisensmith.

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.

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!
