The Residency Partnership Program supports professional ensembles and presenters in building audiences for classical, contemporary, and jazz chamber music through residency projects. The program funds activities that take place in community settings and that are not part of a regular concert series.
Community settings must be accessible to the specific audiences you plan to reach. Examples of community settings are classrooms, libraries, healthcare facilities, senior centers, and parks. The program does not support private lessons or coachings for K-12 students, or activities for college- or conservatory-level music students.
The Board of Directors of Chamber Music America has made diversity, inclusion, and equity a primary focus of the organization's work. CMA's goals in this program are, through the panel review process, to arrive at a final slate of grantees that is representative of the field in terms of the ensembles' race, gender, and style of chamber music.
