Festival of New Trumpet Music 2021 and Dave Douglas present the 19th season of new brass music, from September 8 to 15, featuring trumpeters from 15 different countries and honoring Randy Brecker with the Award of Recognition 2021. Brass Without Borders has become the theme of this year’s festival and once again brings together the worldwide trumpet community, at least virtually.

All performances will be streamed for free on our social media channels and will be accessible later in our archive. Donations are very welcome to ensure the future of the festival.

Festival of New Trumpet Music 2021 is particularly proud to support gender parity on the instrument and in the field. For the first time, male and female artists will be presented in equal numbers. This important development continues the festival’s dedication to the broadest possible view of what constitutes trumpet music, and who can make it. There is always more work to do, but this is a wonderful development for the field.
