Welcome to the Acceptd Application and Audition Portal for the New England Virtual Trumpet Seminar! We are excited that you found your way here and are looking forward to receiving your applications. 

The New England Virtual Trumpet Seminar was organized to fill the void left by music festival and camp closures. Through Zoom video conferencing, these 5-day seminars will offer musical inspiration, information and structure for students of all ages. Some of the best American and European trumpet players and teachers are coming together virtually to bring you this exciting and varied program of masterclasses, lessons, and discussions. 

Our faculty and guest artists are members of the Boston Symphony, Chicago Symphony, Metropolitan Opera, Dallas Symphony, St. Louis Symphony, Berlin Philharmonic, and Concertgebouw Orchestra. They will be presenting classes on topics of interest to trumpeters of all ages. From fundamentals and warm-ups to taking auditions and performing concerti, our faculty will cover a tremendous amount of material in a two-week period. 

We hope you will join us!
