As part of the 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 the 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. In 2019 we are commissioning Josh Lawrence for new work celebrating the rich history of Philadelphia trumpets. Past honorees have included Keyon Harrold, Marquis Hill, Igmar Thomas, and Jeremy Pelt.
