Chamber Music America offers support to ensembles, presenters and festivals for commissioning American composers to create new chamber works. The program provides funding for the composer’s fee, the ensemble’s honorarium and copying costs.
CMA defines chamber music as music for small ensembles (2-10 players) whose members perform one to a part, generally without a conductor. Works may represent any of a diversity of styles, including contemporary art music, jazz, world music, and electronic music. New works created through this program must be performed a minimum of three times in the U.S.
Guidelines and application forms, in MS Word format, can be downloaded and printed from the CMA website, here
(Applications must be submitted in hard copy.)
Deadline: Applications must be received in CMA-s offices no later than Friday, April 3, 2009, 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
