Administrative History

The International Tuba Euphonium Association (ITEA), formerly the Tubists Universal Brotherhood Association (TUBA), was founded in 1973. ITEA is a non-profit organization comprised of performers, educators, students and amateurs who promote the advancement of the tuba and euphonium.

TUBA began holding the International Tuba Euphonium Conference (ITEC) in 1973. The ITEC includes workshops, lectures, and concerts by world famous tubists and emerging artists along with various tuba competitions.

The Tuba-Euphonium Press was founded at the start of the association to make tuba and euphonium music more easily and affordably available to the public. The association also began publishing the TUBA Newsletter in 1974, followed by the TUBA Journal, now the ITEA Journal, in 1977.
