This category includes competition finalists, invited Composers Workshop participants, ITF Presenters, ITF Student and invited ensembles, ITF Artists, ITF staff, and exhibitors. All other attendees are invited to register for our online event. If local and national health guidelines allow for increased numbers of in-person attendees, available seats will be offered to registered online attendees, in order of registration.

Vaccinations: In order to ensure the safest possible environment for all participants, attendees, and performers, the ITF requests that all on-site attendees, performers, and participants be fully vaccinated. If a vaccine is not possible due to availability in your area, please plan to get tested at a local testing site, upon arrival in Columbus. Proof of a negative test will be required for all non-vaccinated attendees.
