2023 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 2023 International Trumpet Guild Conference in Minneapolis, MN (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 if selected by the New Works Committee.
Submissions must have been composed within five years of the submission deadline date of August 15, 2022, and should be un-premiered or have received only limited exposure. Score and separate trumpet part should be provided in pdf format with a clear copyright date, and a recorded 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 attachments (not cloud links), with a maximum total size limit of 25MB. In your email, please state your name and if you are the composer or performer. Compositions may be submitted by a composer individually or by a trumpeter in partnership with a composer. If you are submitting multiple works, please submit each work as a separate email. To involve as many individuals as possible, composers can only have one work performed each year, and performers can only perform one selection each year. If submitted by a composer alone, the ITG New Works Committee will select a trumpeter for the chosen work. 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/performer supply those additional performers. Trumpeters and/or composers 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, 2022. Materials will not be returned. If you have any questions, please contact Marisa Youngs, Chair of New Works, at [email protected]
