In 2003 Dave Douglas and Roy Campbell Jr. initiated the Festival Of New Trumpet Music (FONT) committed to the support of new music by a diverse community of trumpet and brass players, and the presentation of their work to the public. For the 13th edition of this festival I was in New York City myself and had the pleasure to discover exciting music and (re-)connect with a lot of trumpet players and other musicians. What a great opportunity!
Before and around this festival I had the chance to meet many friends and make plans for upcoming projects: Sylvie Courvoisier’s Large Ensemble and a new one with my own music. I also tried to enjoy and explore this beautiful and interesting city. I hope to be back soon!
