Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA orchestras, ensembles, performing organizations, presenters, and individuals to perform classical American music. While applications may be submitted for contemporary works, preference will be given to performances that portray a sense of American music of the past.

The Foundation is especially interested in neglected and rarely performed 20th-century American composers. Also, 2018 is the centennial year of George Rochberg and several leading composers will mark their 80th birthdays including John Harbison, John Corigliano, Charles Wuorinen, Joan Tower and William Bolcom.

As a new foundation, AMP funds are limited, so the best application advice is to be ambitious in scope and imagination while being modest in funds requested.
