Copland Fund for Music accepting proposals for 2016 Recording Program

Posted on: January 7, 2016

The deadline is January 15 to apply for the Aaron Copland Fund for Music’s 2016 Recording Program. The program supports recordings of recent works by American composers and is open to non-profit professional performance ensembles, presenting institutions, and non-profit or commercial recording companies. The program’s goal is to develop audiences for contemporary American music through recorded performances in physical or online media, and to reissue significant recordings that are no longer available. Recordings that will be distributed primarily or solely digitally, whether by download or streaming, are eligible. For all projects distributed digitally, grantees will be required to post liner notes and credits on an appropriate page of their web sites and to provide a permanent copy of the recording for the Fund’s archive. In general, grants will not exceed $20,000 and 50 percent of the project costs. For more information read the program guidelines and FAQs.
