Iowa 2018

The International Trombone Festival will be held at the University of Iowa in Iowa City, Iowa from July 11-14, 2018.  


Our Festival hosts are Jonathan Allen and David Gier


The breathtaking, newly constructed $198-million Voxman Music Building is a state-of-the-art music facility, covering a massive 190,000 square feet, across five floors, and is home to a variety of outstanding performing venues.

The University of Iowa is located in the heart of downtown Iowa City. While Iowa is mostly known for its well-known agricultural export, Iowa City is a city of the arts. In addition to being home to several art galleries and performances spaces, Iowa City is also a UNESCO City of Literature, the only city in the United States with this distinction.

816cd7b9-91a6-4f6b-992d-0c1ecf3fd0cfWith dorms, hotels, restaurants, and lots of other amenities within a short walking distance, and welcoming spaces within the Voxman Building, the UI College of Music is an excellent meeting place for the ITF community.  Not only can you enjoy the Festival program in a beautiful environment, but there is plenty of space to visit with friends, old and new!


Rehearsal and concert spaces are not only conducive to outstanding musical experiences but are aesthetically inspiring as well.  Enjoy world-class performances in stunning venues!


We hope you’ll join us for a great week of music-making at ITF 2018!  Stay tuned for registration, travel, and other information!
