Chamber Music Workshop Grants
DUE TO COVID-19, ACMP IS ACCEPTING GRANT APPLICATIONS ON A ROLLING BASIS THROUGH 2020 AND POSSIBLY DURING THE EARLY MONTHS OF 2021.
Chamber music workshops for amateur musicians of all ages are a priority of ACMP. Grants are awarded to subsidize coaches’ salaries, to reduce registration fees, and/or to allow for scholarships.
Ongoing support for workshops that have previously received funding is not guaranteed - each request is reviewed on its own merit. Please provide a description of all activities in the application, detailing how you will recruit participants and how they will benefit from your program.
Successful applicants are asked to verbally announce ACMP’s support, direct participants to the website and strongly encourage them to join ACMP. All workshop materials must include the correct credit language and ACMP logo, available here.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to COVID-19, ACMP is giving priority to applications for online workshops. If you are applying for an in-person workshop, please describe your COVID-19 safety protocols in detail. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
