FCO celebrates PHILLY at the 2019 Festival of New Trumpet Music

Updated: Aug 28, 2019

Josh Lawrence & Fresh Cut Orchestra will perform his commission "Philly Twisted" at Dizzy's Club on September 10th & 11th.

The suite pays tribute to Philadelphia's cultural heritage and features trumpet luminaries Terell Stafford, Duane Eubanks, John Swana, Freddie Hendrix, Arnetta Johnson, and Leon Jordan Jr. along with FCO bandmates Anwar Marshall, Jason Fraticelli, Brian Marsella, and Arturo Stable.

This project was made possible through the Festival of New Trumpet's Roy Campbell Jr. Commissioning Program instituted in 2014 to honor FONT's co-founder. The program supports the creation of new work in each season, inviting composer/trumpeters to think freely and boldly about contexts and environments for the trumpet in new music. Past honorees included Keyon Harrold, Marquis Hill, Igmar Thomas, and Jeremy Pelt.

Tickets are available now at jazz.org.
