Chamber Music America announces a March 7, 2014 application deadline for its 2014 New Jazz Works: Commissioning and Ensemble Development grant opportunity.
New Jazz Works supports U.S. jazz ensembles (2-10 musicians) with the creation and performance of new works, and activities that extend the life of the work. To date, 171 projects have been funded through CMA's New Jazz Works.

The composition and two performances must take place during the first 18 months of the grant; recipients have up to three years to complete all other grant activities.
