Chamber Music America Residency Endowment Fund
10/18/19 9:00 PM ET
Grants of up to $6,000 to USA and territories nonprofit presenting organizations and ensembles to build audiences for classical, contemporary, jazz, and world chamber music through residency projects. Funding is intended to support activities that take place in community settings and that are not part of a regular concert series.
Examples of eligible residency activities include lecture/demonstrations, workshops that involve the audience, pop-up concerts and other activities designed to inform or engage audiences.
Residency partners are defined as follows:
Projects must consist of a minimum of 3 activities taking place over at least 3 days within a one-month period. Each residency activity must be at least 45 minutes long and performed before a live audience by the full ensemble or majority of its members. The residency may include lecture/demonstrations, workshops that involve the audience participants, pop-up concerts and other activities designed for the audiences served by the Community Partner(s).
Each year, one project featuring a classical string quartet is funded by the Sewell Family Foundation and is designated as the Guarneri String Quartet Residency. The recipient is selected in the final round of the review process, based on the strength of the project. No separate application is required.
