American Music Center Accepting Applications for Aaron Copland Fund for Music Performing Ensembles Program

Deadline: June 30, 2007

Administered by the American Music Center (<a href="http://www.amc.net/">http://www.amc.net/</a>), the Aaron Copland Fund for Music Performing Ensembles Program is designed to support performing organizations whose artistic excellence encourages and improves public knowledge and appreciation of serious contemporary American music.

Funds are available for general operating support or project support to professional performing ensembles with a history of substantial commitment to contemporary American music and with plans to continue that commitment.

Applicants must meet the following requirements: have nonprofit, tax-exempt status; have a performance history of at least two years at the time of application; be able to show that at least 20 percent of their programming (in terms of duration) for the preceding two seasons consists of contemporary American music; and have a demonstrated commitment to contemporary American music.

It is advised that organizations whose primary mission does not include the performance of new American music apply only for project support. Individuals, student ensembles, festivals, and presenters without a core ensemble are not eligible. Grants will not be made for the purpose of commissioning composers.

In general, grants will range from $1,000 to $20,000 each.

Visit the American Music Center Web site for complete program information and application guidelines.
