FONT Commissions

As part of Festival of New Trumpet Music’s ongoing mission to support and present new music, we instituted the Roy Campbell Jr. Commissioning Program in honor of our co-founder in 2014.

The program supports creation of new work in each season, inviting composer / trumpeters to think freely and boldly about contexts and environments for the trumpet in new music.

Each year a composer / trumpeter is chosen by the board of FONT Music. There is no application process for this program.
