In August 2003, the Festival of New Trumpet Music launched its inaugural season at Tonic, a New York City venue for avant-garde, creative, and experimental music. The Festival presented 40 performances over 19 nights, featuring an international lineup of trumpeters and composers representing the worlds of jazz, new music, free form, hip-hop, rock, improvisational, classical, and more. The program for each night included two or three groups. Festival co-founders Dave Douglas and Roy Campbell, Jr. agreed to reconvene a yearly festival of new music involving the trumpet.
