Festival of New Trumpet Music to Begin in August

August is trumpet month in New York, more or less. With the third annual Festival of New Trumpet Music – FONT Music – taking place at venues from the Jazz Standard to Tonic from Aug. 2-27, the sound of that brassy horn should be echoing from skyscraper to skyscraper.
