Music Recording Program
The Aaron Copland Fund for Music accepts grant proposals for the Music Recording Program. The program has several objectives:
- To document and provide wider exposure for the music of contemporary American composers
- To develop audiences for contemporary American music through distribution of recorded performances in physical and online media
- To support the production of new recordings of contemporary American music and the reissuance of significant recordings that are no longer available
Deadline for Preliminary Round: Nov. 15, 2019
Proposals may be submitted by non-profit professional performance ensembles, presenting institutions and non-profit or commercial recording companies. Non-professionals and students are not eligible.
Projects sponsored by universities and similar educational institutions are not eligible. For instances in which a proposal is made in support of an independent professional ensemble in residence at a university, but the ensemble does not have separate 501(c)(3) status, the university may serve as the fiscal sponsor, but the ensemble shall be the applicant.
Because this program is extremely competitive, the Fund will not accept multiple proposals in the same round from organizations other than recording companies.
In general, grants will not exceed $20,000. Grants will generally not exceed 50% of the total project costs.
