New Music for Trumpet

March 6, 2017 in All Opportunities, Composers by mwhiteside

This year I have started a new project geared toward promoting new repertoire for trumpet. I am producing videos of one brand new piece for trumpet and piano each month. The videos will be released on Youtube, Facebook, and my Patreon page, and I would like to make digital downloads of the sheet music available to Patreon Patrons and for sale through my website as each video is released. What I’m looking for is classical works for trumpet and piano. These can be any length, any style, any difficulty level, whatever inspires you most, but I’m looking specifically for works that have never been performed or recorded before!

Submitting a piece does not guarantee that I will select it for performance, but if I do select your piece I will let you know which month the video will be premiering. Patreon Patrons donating $15 per month will get a copy of your piece the month it is released and 50% of that money goes to you. The piece will also go up for sale on my website at the same time for non-patrons at a slightly higher price and 50% of that will go to you as well!

I have several months worth of pieces already but I am in constant need of new music for the future so this is an ongoing opportunity! If you submit a work, I will do my best to take a look at it promptly and let you know if and approximately when I will perform it.

I released the first piece in this project March 1st, 2017. Lyrical Suite for Trumpet by Keith R. Gambling. You can see the first video here and get an idea of what will be coming in the future!

Thanks for considering being a part of this. I know this is a lofty goal but I’m really looking forward to this project and hopefully with your help it will work to bring more attention to new music and create a broad library of new repertoire for the trumpet over the coming years!

If you have questions or would like to submit a work you can reach me at newtrumpetmusic@gmail.com
