Directed since 2003 by trumpeter and composer Dave Douglas, FONT Music aims to provide a platform for emerging artists and creative pioneers, with the goal of celebrating the diversity and excellence of contemporary brass music.

Presenting a week-long festival in September, as well as isolated events throughout the year, FONT Music includes disparate communities of musicians, students, and audiences. The festival is multi-genre, including jazz, new music, balkan, latin, electronic and experimental music, as well as educational events.

Presented by Festival of New Trumpet Music with NYU Steinhardt Jazz Studies and the School of Jazz and Contemporary Music.
