Residency Partnership Program

Application Deadline: 11/20/16

Please note: Application cycle is currently closed.


The Residency Partnership Program supports professional ensembles and presenters in building audiences for classical, contemporary, and jazz chamber music through residency projects. The program funds activities that take place in community settings and that are not part of a regular concert series.


Community settings must be accessible to the specific audiences you plan to reach. Examples of community settings are classrooms, libraries, healthcare facilities, senior centers, and parks. The program does not support private lessons or coachings for K-12 students, or activities for college- or conservatory-level music students.


This program is supported by the Chamber Music America Residency Endowment Fund.
