The mission of New Music USA is to increase opportunities for composers by fostering the creation, performance, dissemination, and appreciation of their music. New Music USA’s Commissioning Music/USA provides grants of between $10,000 and $20,000 to commissioning organizations for the composer’s fee and copying expenses. The 2012 grant round will consider applications for collaborative works that involve music with other visual, media, or performing art forms in integrated and inseparable ways. Once a project is completed, New Music USA will make information on the commissioned work and the composer available to presenters and performers. Applications may be submitted by a single commissioner or consortium of commissioning organizations. The application deadline is March 19, 2012. Visit the New Music USA website for program guidelines and application information.
