The competition is open to all trumpeters age 30 and under as of April 11, 2022. All competitors must play two pieces:

  1. The required piece is Giovanni Buonaventura Viviani's Sonata No. 1, to be played at A=415 in the crook of C
  2. A second self-chosen work. If the second work is an accompanied work, it must be performed with accompaniment, and at A = 415. A PDF of the accompaniment should be uploaded with the competitor's application.

The application fee shall be $35 and all competitors must be members of the Historic Brass Society. Students may join HBS for $35 in dues at HistoricBrass.org.

These should be linked as two separate MP3 files in the following format: CompetitorName_PieceTitle.MP3. If using platforms like Youtube or SoundCloud, please title your posts similarly: Competitor Name - Piece Title.
