Georgia 2021: Register!

Registration is open! Early bird pricing (save 10%) through May 01!

The ITF staff is beyond excited to welcome our audience back for 2021! After a year of social distancing, we can’t wait to get back to tromboning! We know we join many, in celebrating the return of live music!

That being said, the safety of our attendees, artists, presenters, and staff is of the upmost importance, as we all transition (hopefully) back to normal life in the coming months. To ensure the best possible experience for all involved, the ITF has adopted a hybrid live/online format, along with a stepwise plan for opening in-person registrations, as social distancing guidelines allow.

ITF ONLINE: For the first time ever, the ITF will have a fully online option, available for registration by attendees around the world. Highlights of our online program include:

-> An interactive event platform, allowing attendees, exhibitors, and artists to communicate in real time
-> Watch anywhere: Access online, or use our event app to watch on-the-go
-> Trombone TV, our curated daily live stream, to be aired in real-time, straight from the stages at Columbus State University! Tune in and see what’s happening, as it’s happening!
Can’t make it to the online event in real-time? We’ve got you covered!
The full ITF program will be archived to high-quality video, with viewing available for up to 30 days after the Festival ends. It’s easy – just click an event on the calendar, and watch on your schedule!

ITF IN-PERSON: Starting March 15, in-person registration will be open to ITF Performers only (individuals who are performing or presenting on the program).

Once all performers are registered and accounted for, available in-person registrations will be offered to existing online registrants, in the order of registration. This will proceed on a rolling basis, with slots being released as social distancing guidelines allow. We hope to have a FULL in-person Festival this summer, but we are committed to doing that safely, which means full compliance with audiences limits at the venue. Please bear with us as we navigate the changing landscape of the pandemic! In the meantime, be sure to register for the online event, to hold your place in line for live attendance!

ITF Youth Workshop & STS Youth Camp: Students are invited to register for the online event.

As with our adult attendees, live attendance slots will be released to existing online registrants, in the order of registration, as they become available. Since children in the US may not be vaccinated by July, the ITF may choose to hold all youth events online for 2021. We will post updates, as they are available. STS Competition Winners are invited to register for live attendance.

ITF Composers Workshop: (By invitation only) Composers whose works have been chosen for performance at the ITF are invited to register for live attendance.

On-campus housing:

A limited number of dorm rooms are available on the CSU campus, for those attending the ITF in person. All accommodations will be one person to a room, and social distancing guidelines will be in place. Dorms can be added during registration, for 4, 5, or 6-night packages.

Registration information for residents of Mainland China:

Registration in Mandarin Chinese will be offered on the ITF website for $100 USD.  For those in Mainland China looking to experience the ITF, we are also offering the opportunity to register at and view all videos from the Festival behind the Chinese firewall.  The price of $138 USD for this service reflects the added costs associated with advertising and administration in China.
