Chamber Music America Announces The 2015 Presenter Consortium For Jazz Grant Opportunity

Published:
Chamber Music America (CMA) is accepting applications for the 2015 Presenter Consortium for Jazz. The application deadline is Friday, October 17, 2014, 5:00 P.M. ET. Guidelines, application, and FAQs are available on the CMA website.

The Presenter Consortium for Jazz provides support to consortiums of three U. S. presenters that collectively engage up to three professional U.S. jazz ensembles (consisting of 2-10 musicians each) to perform at each presenter’s venue. Additional incentives are available to each consortium that invites one of the 179 CMA New Jazz Works grantee ensembles to perform its entire CMA commission.

A consortium consists of one Lead Presenter, two Presenter Partners, and up to three Ensembles. The consortium presenters must be located at least 50 miles apart. The consortium may work together to create a single program that travels to each venue or each partner may curate its own separate program(s). All grant activity must take place between January 1, 2015 and June 30, 2016.

Presenter Consortium for Jazz funds up to 75% of concert fees, travel, housing, per diem, cartage, marketing and production costs, for a maximum of $10,000 per consortium partner/$30,000 per consortium. A $1,000 incentive per partner is available to a consortium that programs a CMA New Jazz Works grantee ensemble(s) in performance of its entire CMA-commissioned work. In this case, the maximum amount of the request may increase to $13,000 for each consortium partner/$39,000 per consortium, but the request may not exceed 75% of the eligible expenses of each partner.

This program is made possible by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.
