CMA New Jazz Works Grants: Apply Now

Chamber Music America's New Jazz Works: Commissioning and Ensemble Development program offers support to professional U.S. jazz ensembles to create, perform, and if desired, record new works. This year's guidelines and application are available now.

Elements of the program and application process have changed from previous years. The application deadline is March 7, 2014.

To be eligible, an ensemble must be based in the US, consist of 2-10 members, include improvisation as an integral part of its composition and performance, and be a current CMA organizational-level member. Applications are reviewed by an independent panel of jazz musicians.

The New Jazz Works Program is funded by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and is a component of the Doris Duke Jazz Ensembles Project.
