Millennial Highlights: Festival of New Trumpet Music

Among the many exciting concerts this month, the Festival of New Trumpet Music stands out as a forum to hear some of the millennial generation’s most talented players (trumpeters as well as other musicians), as the annual festival celebrates its 10th anniversary. There has been an explosion of trumpet talent over the past ten years, much or which is going to be featured at the festival. Below I have listed some of the most promising sets:
