The Residency Partnership Program supports professional ensembles and presenters in building audiences for classical/contemporary, jazz, and world chamber music through residency projects. Funding is intended for activities that take place in community settings and that are not part of a regular concert series. Activities may include, but are not limited to, interactive or audience engagement programs in classrooms (preschool through high school), libraries, hospitals, senior centers, or other community venues. The program does not support private lessons or coachings for K-12 students, or music activities intended for college- or conservatory-level music students.

 

New this year: Applications must be submitted online.

 

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