Grants to New York nonprofit organizations and schools for fine arts stage productions in eligible counties. Funding is intended to support opera, ballet, theater, and live music presentations that reflect the form in which they were originally created and are traditionally presented. Grants must benefit Allegany, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Erie, Genesee, Niagara, Orleans, and Wyoming Counties.
The Oliver G. & Sarah Sloan Bauman Fund for the Arts was established, in the words of its founder, "to perpetuate the appreciation of such fine arts as an important and integral part of our culture."
Funding will be prioritized and awarded in 2 tiers:
Awards will be prioritized first for performances of “traditional, classical ballet and opera on the living stage, and preferably of the English, European, or Russian schools.” Qualifying performances should “preserve the originality of their composition, so the ballets are presented in their traditional choreography, and operas are sung in the language in which they were composed (except certain operas which may be customarily be rendered in English and are regarded as ‘traditional’ by the Metropolitan Opera Company of New York).”
If any funds remain after awards have been made to all ballet and opera nonprofits eligible under Tier 1, awards will be prioritized for qualifying performances presented through the encouragement and support of responsible music or theater nonprofits. Qualifying works shall “preserve the high quality of performance of traditional or classical works” of music, theater, or ballet from the repertories traditionally considered classical for each medium.
