Dear Mr. Zick,

I enjoy reading AfriClassical blog posts.  Thank you for your sincere commitment.

Chamber Music America would like to receive submissions to its grantmaking programs from more applicants of diverse backgrounds.  We would appreciate your posting the information below on your blogpost:

Chamber Music America Classical Commissioning Program

Chamber Music America, the national network of ensemble music professionals, offers support to U.S.-based classical/contemporary ensembles, presenters and festivals for commissioning American composers to create new chamber works. 

CMA’s Classical Commissioning Program grants are made for commissioning fees, copying costs and ensemble rehearsal honoraria. 

Compositions must be written for small ensembles (2 to 10 musicians) performing one to a part, and may represent a diverse musical spectrum, including contemporary art music, world music, and works that include electronics.

Commission fees range from $5,000 to $20,000.  Applicants must be Chamber Music America members at the Organization level.

The new composition must be performed by the ensemble a minimum of three times in the U.S.

Program guidelines, online application and FAQs can be downloaded at the CMA website,  All CMA grant applications are now submitted online.

Submissions must be received no later than Friday, April 1, 2016 at 11:59 PM Eastern Time.
