ACMP awards grants to member organizations to present concerts that provide performance opportunities for multiple adult amateur chamber music ensembles.
Some examples of eligible expenses are venue rental, refreshments, staffing costs, piano tuning, instrument rental, chair rental, advertising, printing costs for flyers/programs, audio/video documentation, photography.
ACMP does not support the purchase of sheet music or equipment or artist fees for professional musicians.
To be eligible for this grant, you must be an ACMP organizational member listed in the Chamber Music Organization Directory and subscribe to the ACMP newsletter.
NOTE: Amateur and community orchestras, or any other membership organization that serves adult amateur musicians, may join our Chamber Music Organization Directory, even if chamber music is not the organization’s primary mission.
Application is for an individual event on a specific date (see application form for required details).
No performers in the concert may receive payment.
Organizations may receive up to a total of $500 through the Impresario grant program over the course of ACMP’s fiscal year (August 1 – July 31.)
ACMP requires that you acknowledge its support and include its logo on your printed programs and on all printed and digital publicity materials. Although it is not required that all of your performers be ACMP members, ACMP will provide you with materials that you will use to encourage your members to join. Please submit your application a minimum of four weeks before your concert date, so that we have time to mail you those materials.
To complete this simple one-page application form, you will need to provide the following information:
After your concert, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with a brief report of your event, including the concert program and photos and video footage, if you have it, for potential posting on ACMP’s blog or social media.
