Festival 2019

Festival of New Trumpet Music 2019 and Dave Douglas present a 17th season of fresh brass music, including a celebration and award performance by trumpeter Jimmy Owens (September 8). From September 3 to 12, FONT Music will inhabit 7 NYC venues including Dizzy’s Club, The Stone at the New School, The Jazz Gallery, Jazz Standard, and Threes Brewing.

A first this year, FONT Music presents the New Jazz Trumpet Workshop. This master class will present a select group of young trumpeters a chance to meet awardee Jimmy Owens and performance of their own. Trumpeters will get hands-on coaching from Dave Douglas and Alex Sipiagin. Applications available here: fontmusic.org/workshop2019 

For 17 years FONT has been directed by Dave Douglas along with an all-volunteer staff and board of trumpeters and trumpet lovers. FONT Music is dedicated to supporting new trumpeters and trumpet music in all its forms.
