Summary: CMA supports presenters in its Residency Partnership Program, which seeks to build audiences for classical/contemporary, jazz and world chamber music. Funding is specifically aimed at activities taking place in community settings not part of a regular concert series. Schools can benefit. Across 7 Street and the Bronx Charter School for the Arts won a grant for a series of school-based performances, as did the Rosa Parks Elementary School, San Francisco, CA.
CMA also offers Presenter Consortium for Jazz grants, which strengthens the evolving chamber-music community. Those grants run on a different funding timetable.
