2013 ITW Events
Well, that's Y-O-U. We're hoping you'll help to create a vibrant mix of musical experiences with student, amateur, and professional performers as well as their family and friends. See some of the events submitted for 2013.
Select great music
Perform music you like and consider including a special work composed in honor of International Trombone Week. For example, Brad Edwards composed several marvelous ITW fanfares for trombone octet. You'll find his music and more on the ITA's site. You can download it and at no cost to you; please credit the composer and mention ITW.
Practice, practice, practice
Your event represents the trombone. Make your performance as beautiful, polished and professional as possible. Arrive early and well-prepared; thank your host and the audience. Your event represents the trombone and trombonists everywhere.
Spread the "ITW vibe" in your community
Register your event on the ITA's website and tell the world what you're doing. Talk it up around town, too. You can find out about other ITW events (and cheer on your colleagues) by visiting the ITA's site, Facebook, Twitter (use hashtag "spitvalve"), youTube, Flickr.
