Chamber Music America and ASCAP team up each year to present awards for Adventurous Programming to honor U.S.-based professional ensembles, presenters, and festivals that have “…demonstrated a commitment to contemporary chamber music through adventurous, distinctive programming.”
Ensembles (contemporary, mixed repertory, and Jazz) and presenting organizations (contemporary, mixed genre, and jazz) are considered. The awards will be presented during the next CMA National Conference in New York City, January 13-16, 2011. Each recipient will receive a $500 award and a plaque.
This year’s deadline is October 1, 2010. (This is an in-office deadline, not a postmark date). For more information and to download the program guidelines, application and FAQs, visit the CMA website .
