2021 ITG New Works Winners

In an effort to promote new repertoire for trumpet, each year the International Trumpet Guild (ITG) features new music  at its annual conference as part of the New Works Recitals.  The ITG New Works Committee would like to congratulate the composers and performers selected to perform at the New Works Recitals at the 2021 ITG Conference in California.

This year, we received many high-quality submissions from around the world. As a result of this highly competitive process, twelve 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.
