The Amphion Foundation
The Foundation was established in 1987 to encourage the performance of contemporary concert music, particularly by American composers, through support to performing and presenting organizations that have demonstrated sustained artistic excellence, in addition to service organizations. Grants are provided to publicly supported nonprofit performing ensembles, presenters, and music service organizations that have a history of substantial commitment to contemporary concert music at a high level of excellence. Applying organizations must have been in existence at least two years and have completed two full seasons of programming prior to the time of application. Except for certain choral groups, only professional choral ensembles may apply. Proposals will be accepted from amateur choral ensembles and youth choirs performing contemporary classical music at an exceptionally high artistic level. Applicants other than orchestras and opera companies may request either general operating support or support for special projects. All orchestras and opera companies, except for contemporary music specialists, are eligible to apply only for special project support. Applications are accepted from Feb. 7, 2015 through April 2015. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
