Chamber Music America’s New Jazz Works program provides grants to U.S. jazz ensembles to create, perform, and if desired, record new works. The new work may be composed by the ensemble leader or another member of the ensemble.

 

The Board of Directors of Chamber Music America has made diversity, inclusion, and equity a primary focus of the organization’s work. CMA seeks to fulfill its vision for the future, where people of all races, religions, genders, and abilities are able to fully participate in the performance, presentation, and enjoyment of the many styles of small ensemble music. Therefore, CMA’s goal in this program is, through the panel review process, to arrive at a final slate of grantees that is representative of the field in terms of race, gender, and style of jazz.

Residency Partnership Program

       
Application Deadline: 10/15/17

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.
