ITEC 2019

Interesting, was not expecting that location. Not disappointed, I can actually drive there in one day. It's about the same distance from me as knoxville

hmm...
big staircase / lots of tubas carried up-and-down them by clumsy overweight 20-year-olds...

Maybe I should rig up a repair trailer. :wink:

My Mom went to school there in the 1930's, and was an art student of Grant Wood. I've been told there was painting of hers hanging in the administration bldg for decades. I'd have to believe that it is no more, and the painting has disappeared.

Does the "I" stand for Iowa? :wink:

Iowa City is NOT a very convenient location to fly to. Nearest airport is Cedar Rapids, which is about a 30-minute drive away from campus. Plus, there aren't really all that many flights to Cedar Rapids either. It's awkward enough with luggage, let alone to fly with a tuba.

But, it's a nice campus and people in Iowa are REALLY nice. Congrats to them for winning this event!

considering they are skipping the 2018 ITEC to put the next international event on the 40th anniversary of the first convention, I was expecting the location to be at Indiana or someplace with more historical significance for the tuba. Nothing against Iowa, but it was still a surprise when it was announced.

Bill Bell was born and died in Iowa. Not good enough?

I doubt that was the reason it was selected. I'm just glad it's within driving distance, at least it's not in Japan again this year

Um... you do know that I wasn't serious in thinking that was the reason, right? :|

I'm sure Knoxville raised some eyebrows too when it was announced, but that sure seemed to go well.

The idea is to get on track with odd-numbered years so that the 50th anniversary can line up with an ITEC in 2023.

ITEC always happens where someone offers to host and makes a compelling case that it is the best of the available [all good] options.

This will be a well run conference. John is a great guy, and very professional. I visited there when the music building was in the campus center. I thought the facilities were nice, but from what I have seen, the new building is amazing.

As far as travel, it's driveabke for me! (Bloomington has a similar location issue).

Just to be clear, I was NOT complaining about the location, I actually like it. I was just surprised

I'm super excited about this. Aside from the in-state annual Bandmaster's conference and the Music Educator's conference there aren't many opportunities like this for me. Midwest is in Chicago, but that is still a 9 hour drive from home. Most of the fun conferences are out of reach for me, but this provides a great opportunity that is well within reach!

About 300 miles from the Twin Cities (Minneapolis and St. Paul, MN). Well within driving distance. This may be fun.

Schools are "selected" because the tuba professor and the school are WILLING to host it.

CONGRATULATIONS and THANK YOU to John Manning for hosting this event!! There's a TON of work involved in running an event like this. Knowing John and having been a part of previous events he's presented - John will pull it off with flying colors!

Looking forward to a stellar ITEC in 2019!!
