Announcement from Chamber Music America:
Chamber Music America Grant Opportunity: CMA Residency Partnership Program
The Residency Partnership Program supports ensembles and presenters in building audiences for classical/contemporary, jazz, and world chamber music through residency projects. Funding is intended for activities that take place in community settings and that are not part of a regular concert series. Activities may include, but are not limited to, interactive or audience engagement programs in classrooms (preschool through high school), libraries, hospitals, senior centers, or other community venues. The program does not support music activities intended for college- or conservatory-level music students. Projects must take place in the U.S. or its territories.
The length of the residencies ranges from a minimum of three days to one year.
Short-term projects: 3-9 activities taking place over at least three consecutive or separate days within one month. (Funding: $2,500 to $6,000)
Extended projects: 10 or more activities taking place over more than one month and up to one year. (Funding: $5,000 to $12,000)
Grants support up to 75 percent of expenses directly connected to the project. The balance must be drawn from other sources, such as cash from other grants, earned income, or an allocation from the organization’s general operating funds.
This year’s deadline is Friday, October 31, 2014, 5:00 P.M. Eastern Time. (This is a receipt deadline)
