David Sanford’s Seven Kings, a multi-movement work for brass quintet and trumpet soloist inspired by the complex interplay in King Oliver’s Creole Jazz Band, was commissioned by the Festival of New Trumpet Music and Chamber Music America in 2009 and premiered in January 2010 featuring the Meridian Arts Ensemble and Dave Ballou. The current issue of the Chamber Music Magazine features this piece and a part of the score.

Each year at FONT Music, we widen our embrace of trumpet artists with emerging voices, pioneering voices, voices that remind us of our histories, and voices that challenge our notion of diversity and ideas of evolution. This year we had a chorus of progressive sound resonating throughout this city and we thank you for joining us for FONT 2017.
