Dear ICA Members,
The ICA Board of Directors in consultation with our Advisory Board has made the difficult and disappointing decision to cancel ClarinetFest® 2020. This decision was made based on the current world events and what we believe is in the best interest of the safety of our worldwide membership. We know how many members were looking forward to this year’s conference and regret any inconveniences this may cause.
We would like to thank ClarinetFest® 2020 Artistic Director Leslie Moreau and the Artistic Leadership Team – Joshua Anderson, Karl Busch, Shawn Copeland. Gerry Errante, and D. Gause for sharing their remarkable talents in planning ClarinetFest® 2020. We would also like to thank our ClarinetFest 2020® sponsors – Anderson Insurance, Backun Musical Services, Buffet Crampon, F. Arthur Uebel, Rovner Products, RZ Woodwinds, Selmer Paris, Silverstein Works, Steinway Piano Gallery of Reno, University of Nevada, and Vandoren, for their generous support of the festival.
Congratulations to Robert Spring and Charles West for receiving ICA Honorary Membership. We plan to confer their awards at ClarinetFest® 2021 in Fort Worth. We thank all of the amazing clarinetists from around the world who were scheduled to perform and present in Reno. A very special thank you to Jessica Harrie, ICA Executive Director of Operations, for all of her work in planning and preparing for the conference.
For anyone who has pre-registered for ClarinetFest® 2020, the ICA can offer you three options for your funds:
  • Full refund – Send request by email to Jessica Harrie at edo@clarinet.org
    • If you do not have access to email please send a written request by US mail to:
      • International Clarinet Association
      • 829 Bethel Road #216
      • Columbus, OH 43214
  • Pre-register for ClarinetFest® 2021. The ICA will honor the 2020 cost for registration (with no increase) for pre-registered members of ClarinetFest® 2020 at ClarinetFest® 2021.
  • Donation – The ICA is a non-profit organization that depends on the support of its members to continue to provide the annual conferences, quarterly journal, and the variety of member benefits.
During the uncertain times ahead, donations from our members will be especially meaningful to help insure the continued success and financial stability of the association.
For anyone who has made hotel reservations at the Peppermill, please contact the hotel to cancel your reservations so you will not be charged.
Accepted proposals for ClarinetFest® 2020 will be invited to ClarinetFest® 2021 in Fort Worth. Further information regarding the plans for ClarinetFest® 2021 will be distributed after September 1, 2020.
All of the 2020 competitions will go on as previously announced, and we encourage everyone to apply before the April 15, 2020 deadline.
We are working with the Peppermill Resort to reschedule a conference at their property in a future year.
We wish all of our members around the world good health as we move forward during these unprecedented times and thank you for your patience and understanding.
Sincerely,
The ICA Board of Directors
Mitchell Estrin, President
Caroline Hartig, Past-President
Denise Gainey, President Elect
Tod Kerstetter, Treasurer
