2020 ITG New Works Winners Announced

The International Trumpet Guild New Works Committee would like to congratulate the composers and performers selected to perform at the 2020 ITG New Works Recitals at the 2020 ITG Conference in Columbus, Ohio.

This year, we received 117 submissions from around the world. As a result of this highly competitive process, thirteen new works were accepted for performance at this year's conference. Our committee thanks all the composers and performers for their submissions and contributions to the development of our instrument’s repertoire.
