2015 Indiana Music Teachers Association State Conference
September 25th and 26th at Vincennes University in Vincennes, Indiana.
*The Conference Schedule is now available!
*Masterclass with Logan Skelton - Application deadline September 5 (more information below).
The Vincennes University Music Department and community are pleased to welcome IMTA to our beautiful campus! This year’s conference promises to be a one-of-a-kind event, featuring conference artist Logan Skelton, commissioned composer Caroline KyungA Ahn, piano pedagogue Diane Hidy and vocal pedagogue Marietta Simpson, a roster of qualified presenters in the piano and vocal sessions, poster presentations and an exhibitor’s hall.
The conference will be held in the Red Skelton Performing Arts Center. Opened in 2006, the center includes an 850-seat theater dedicated to the extraordinary life and years of Red Skelton, a Vincennes native. The center includes classroom and performance rehearsal spaces, a grand foyer and the Red Skelton Museum, housing many of Red’s awards, costumes, and personal property linked to his storied career.
The conference will afford independent music teachers, professional musicians, performers and students an opportunity to enjoy the beauty of great music in performance, the promise of young people learning to make music, the pleasure of learning something new yourself, and the fun of catching up with old friends and making new ones in our Indiana family of music teachers.
The sessions will be scheduled for the duration of the conference, Friday and Saturday; the poster presentations will be exhibited on Saturday only.
The IMTA Conference Piano Masterclass with Logan Skelton will take place at 9:00-10:30 a.m. on Saturday, September 26, 2015, in Vincennes University's Red Skelton Performing Arts Center.
Students at the intermediate level are encouraged to audition along with those who are more advanced. Three students will be selected to play in the masterclass.
