We at Women’s Philharmonic Advocacy are delighted to announce that we are now accepting applications for the 2014 Performance Grants to support the works of women being performed. Information about the and the application form is available online.
Grants will be awarded in amounts between $500 and $1,000 to ensembles that demonstrate a commitment to including works by historic and contemporary women in their programming. Funds will be available to programs planned for the 2015 and 2016 calendar years – and half of the $20,000 allocated for Performance Grants will be reserved for student or youth ensembles.
The last time we offered Performance Grants, in 2012, we were delighted with the response and the range of works that were performed, and are looking forward to supporting even more inclusive programming in the coming seasons.
Applications will be accepted until November 19 – so spread the word and encourage your favorite professional, community, or youth ensemble to apply and include diverse programming in their upcoming concert seasons!
