Women Composing for Trumpet Competition

About the WCFT Competition

The Women Composing for Trumpet Competition was created to add to the list of "standard" trumpet repertoire composed by women. Though there are many incredible compositions by women for solo trumpet, the only one that is considered "standard" by the trumpet community is the Pakhmutova, written in 1955. It is the goal of this competition to bring light to this matter, as well as give modern women composers the opportunity to contribute to this list of "standards" and be recognized for their accomplishments. The WCFT is a non-profit competition and all additional proceeds will

be donated to the International Women's Brass Conference.
