September 25th and 26th at Vincennes University in Vincennes, Indiana.
*The deadline for poster sessions has now been extended to August 1st.*
Please send all session and poster presentation abstracts and other required information electronically to: IMTA@vinu.edu
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. All interested applicants must submit information and artifacts consistent with the 2015 Conference Call for Proposals.
Driving directions, maps, parking information, and hotel information are already up on the website (see link below). Please be sure to check back for more details to come including a detailed conference schedule, descriptions of piano and vocal presenters and sessions, lists of poster presenters and exhibitors, conference menus and local restaurants, entertainment, and more!
We sincerely hope that you accept our conference invitation and are looking forward to seeing you on the Vincennes campus in September!
