New Jazz Works


This application cycle is currently closed.


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’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.

A component of the Doris Duke Jazz Ensembles Project, the New Jazz Works Program
is funded by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.
