The Aaron Copland Fund For Music
The Fund was created from the bequest of the contemporary music composer. Its purpose is to encourage and improve public knowledge and appreciation of contemporary American music. The Fund operates three grant programs: the Recording program; the Performing Ensembles program; and the Supplemental program. The objective of the Recording program is to document and provide wider exposure for the music of contemporary American composers and to develop audiences for contemporary American music through record distribution and other retail markets. Recording grants also can be awarded to support the release and dissemination of recordings of previously unreleased contemporary American music and the reissuance of recordings no longer available. Performing ensembles grants support performing organizations whose artistic excellence encourages and improves public knowledge and appreciation of serious contemporary American music. Supplemental grants support nonprofits that have a history of substantial commitment to contemporary American music, but whose needs are not addressed by the Fundís programs of support for performing organizations and recording projects. The deadline is for the recording grants. Additional information including details about the other grants can be found on the Web site.
