I hope everyone is making plans to attend the ITG conference in Minneapolis - May 24-28.

Early Bird registration for the ITG conference is March 15, and everyone registering before this date receives a free ticket to Jouko Harjanne soloing with the Minnesota Orchestra. In addition, the Orchestra is performing Mahler 6. BUT - the earlier you register, the better your seats will be for the concert. The first 99 paid registrants before March 15 will receive $59 tickets - these are excellent seats!

Also - there is a possibility of conference participants performing the Star Spangled Banner at the Minnesota Twins game on May 23. Keep this in mind when booking your plane flights. We won't know until January, though, if the Twins game is a go.
