Bill Dixon Music Fund at FONT
The Festival of New Trumpet Music was deeply saddened by the death of Bill Dixon (October 5, 1925 – June 16, 2010). Dixon was an inspiration and a trailblazer, not just for his extraordinary musical innovations as a trumpet player and composer, but also for his revolutionary work as an organizer and musical activist. FONT Music is one of the many grassroots, musician-led organizations that exists through his example.
At the request of Dixon’s estate, FONT Music is honored to act as the fiscal sponsor for the Bill Dixon Music Fund, which will support the performances of music written by Dixon, or inspired by or dedicated to him. Checks may be sent to the address below, payable to the Festival of New Trumpet Music with “Dixon Fund” on the memo line. Secure online donations can also be made by clicking here; please designate “Dixon Fund” at the bottom of the page.
