As part of 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 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.
Each year a composer / trumpeter is chosen by the board of FONT Music. There is no application process for this program.
