April 2013 Composer Assistance Program Awardees Announced


New Music USA has announced grant awards totaling $33,245 to 28 composers through the April 2013 round of the Composer Assistance Program (CAP). The grants are intended to help composers take full advantage of performance opportunities that will enhance their careers. The ensembles and organizations premiering or featuring public readings in this round’s CAP-supported works include: Jonathan Biss and the Elias String Quartet, the Los Angeles Dance Project, Talea Emsemble, New York Youth Symphony First Music Program, and the San Francisco Chamber Orchestra.

The Composer Assistance Program will be part of New Music USA’s new approach to supporting new music, a reconfiguration of five preexisting grant programs into one, comprehensive program. Through this new strategy, composers—alongside organizations, presenters, and musicians—will be able to apply for an even wider range of activity to help realize their envisioned artistic endeavors.
