2020 Call for New Works Deadline Approaching

The deadline for submissions to the 2020 New Works Recital(s) at the 2020 ITG Conference in Columbus Ohio, is Thursday, August 15, 2019.

The official announcement is below:

The International Trumpet Guild announces a call for submissions of new compositions for trumpet to be performed at the New Works Recital at the 2020 International Trumpet Guild Conference in Columbus, Ohio (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, 2019, 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:

composer-title.pdf composer-title.mp3

Works should be submitted electronically via email to [email protected]. Large files should be submitted using a file-sharing service such as Dropbox (http://www.dropbox.com), sharing with the same address. 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 includingconference registration. Works will be reviewed by the New Works Committee, and notification of inclusion on the recital will be made by October 1, 2019. Materials will not be returned.
