Grants for Various Type of Music Compositions

From The Foundation Center...

Meet The Composer Invites Grant Applications for Commis-
sioning Music/USA

Deadline: March 13, 2009

Meet The Composer ( http://www.meetthecomposer.org/ ) offers
support through its Commissioning Music/USA program to ensure
that composers and their commissioners have the knowledge and
resources to successfully complete their shared goals. This
support takes the form of subsidized commissioning fees as well
as technical assistance in managing the entire life-cycle of a
commissioning project.

The 2009 round of Commissioning Music/USA will consider applica-
tions for concert works (i.e., stand-alone musical works created
by single or collaborating composers and performable in a concert
setting) in the following genres: chamber, jazz, orchestral,
chorus, and solo works. Proposed works can be in any style and
may be notated, improvised, electronic, or any combination.

Applications may be submitted by a single commissioner or consor-
tium of commissioning organizations. If selected to participate
in the program, Commissioning Music/USA offers between $10,000
and $20,000 in support of the composer's commissioning fee and
copying expenses.

Visit the Meet The Composer Web site for complete program guide-
lines.
