New Works Deadline Approaching (August 15)
The International Trumpet Guild's Call for New Works deadline is August 15, 2021. The original call is posted below.
CALL FOR NEW WORKS
The International Trumpet Guild announces a call for submissions of new compositions for trumpet to be performed at the New Works Recital at the 2022 International Trumpet Guild Conference in San Antonio, TX (USA). Works must feature trumpet in a prominent role as soloist or co-soloist and be appropriate for a recital setting.
In order to allow for a wide range of possibilities, this call does not specify instrumentation, but please note that compositions of unusual duration or instrumentation may face extra-musical hurdles when being considered by the New Works Committee. Submissions must have been composed within five years of the submission deadline date of August 15, 2021, and should be un-premiered or have received only limited exposure. Score and separate trumpet part should be provided in pdf format, and a recording of a performance or electronic simulation should be provided in mp3 format. File names should clearly identify the work as follows:
Works should be submitted electronically via email to [email protected] as email attachments, with a maximum total size limit of 25MB. In your email, please state your name and if you are the composer or performer. If you are submitting multiple works, please submit each work as a separate email. Compositions may be submitted by a composer individually or by a trumpeter in partnership with a composer. If submitted by a composer alone, a chosen work will be performed at the conference by a trumpeter nominated by the ITG New Works Committee. Inclusion of a work on the New Works Recital does not imply any financial obligation of the ITG, beyond providing a collaborative pianist to perform. Works calling for instruments other than or in addition to piano will require that the composer supply those performers. Composers and/or trumpeters will be responsible for all costs including conference registration. Works will be reviewed by the New Works Committee, and notification of inclusion on the recital will be made by October 1, 2021. Materials will not be returned.
If you have any questions, please contact Jason Dovel, Chair of New Works, at this email address: [email protected].
