Aaron Copland Fund For Music
DescriptionThe Fund, named for the American composer of contemporary music, seeks to encourage and improve public knowledge and appreciation of contemporary American music. The Fund's Performance Program supports performing and presenting organizations whose artistic excellence encourages and improves public knowledge and appreciation of serious contemporary American music. The Fund awards general operating support grants of up to $20,000 to professional performing ensembles and presenting organizations with a history of substantial commitment to contemporary American music as well as plans to continue that commitment. The Program also provides project support for exceptionally important activities related to contemporary American music proposed by professional performing ensembles and presenting organizations that do not normally feature contemporary American music in their programming. Eligible projects are classified as a clearly defined endeavor that includes one or more performances of contemporary American music and, often, other activities related to the performance(s) that improve the public's knowledge of such music. Projects featuring only one contemporary American work on a single concert program are not eligible for support unless authorized in advance by the grants manager. Watch for announcements on when the Program will be accepting applications again. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
