2020 Ellsworth Smith Competition Postponed until September 2021
We are sad to announce that the 2020 Ellsworth Smith International Trumpet Solo Competition will be postponed to September 2021. We recognize and appreciate the work of all competitors who have been working diligently to prepare for this competition, but the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic across the world has made the event untenable this year. Competition dates and repertoire list for the 2021 competition will be announced in early 2021. The entry birth date will remain the same, so anyone who was eligible to apply this year will be eligible next year as well. At this time, we don’t anticipate changes to the repertoire list, but do reserve the right to make changes should it be deemed necessary. We add our voices to those around the world hoping for relief from this pandemic and anticipate that improved circumstances will allow for an extremely successful Ellsworth Smith International Trumpet Solo Competition in 2021.
