2024 New Works Selections Announced


The International Trumpet Guild (ITG) is pleased to announce the composers and performers selected to present new works at the 2024 ITG Conference in Anaheim, California, USA which will be held May 28 – June 1, 2024.

This year, the ITG New Works Committee altered submission guidelines to feature only works written within the last three years, and aimed to prioritize composers and performers not involved with New Works in recent years. The committee received 90 high-quality submissions from around the world. From this extensive list, the committee selected 14 new works for live performance at this year's conference. In addition, ITG will feature six pre-recorded works as virtual performances posted on ITG social media platforms. The New Works Committee thanks all of the composers and performers for their submissions and for expanding trumpet repertoire. Thank you to the New Works Committee for their efforts in reviewing the numerous submissions and organizing the recitals:

Stephen Campbell, Ball State University (Committee Member)

Ashley Killam, Diversify the Stand (Committee Member)

Theresa May, Chromatic Brass Collective (Committee Member)

Armida Rivera, Universidad de Ciencias y Artes de Chiapas, Mexico (Committee Member)

Stacy Simpson, Bellarmine University (Committee Member)
