Our Made in America Stimulus Purchase Program celebrating USA manufacturing still has funds available. The pandemic has been difficult for all of us and Conn-Selmer has committed to providing an additional $1 million of stimulus aid to schools interested in purchasing school-owned USA manufactured instruments.

This includes bass clarinets, tubas, french horns, marching brass, baritones, euphoniums, sousaphones, mallet instruments, timpani, and other made in America products typically purchased by schools and used across multiple ensembles.


We are excited to shine a light on the importance of American hand-made craftsmanship while also encouraging economic growth right here in the USA. From sourcing to producing, we pride ourselves on supporting jobs and manufacturing high-quality instruments for music education.

Tournament Indoor Association will hold virtual events for all member units from Saturday, March 6, through Saturday, May 1. (Note: NO events will be scheduled for Saturday, April 3–Easter Weekend) Unit directors must register by 6:00 PM on the preceding Sunday.

Color Guards, Twirlers, Dance Teams, Marching and Stationary Percussion, Marching Winds, and Jazz Bands are all welcome to participate in the TIA 2021 VIRTUAL! events.

Tournament recognizes that the nine states, hundreds of counties and communities, and all member school districts all have specific regulations and guidelines for student participation, rehearsals, and performances during the current COVID-19 pandemic. Tournament supports unit directors and performing units in whatever format is possible. The safety and health of the unit is of most importance as groups encourage participation and foster growth in the activities that we all cherish.

Thank you to the unit directors, staff, supporters and boosters, along with the participants, for continued support for the activities that Tournament Indoor Association offers. We look forward to a season of virtual performances filled with enjoyment and educational value for all involved.

TIA Region Coordinators emailed details and registration link to members last week.
