Aaron Copland Fund for Music Invites Applications for Contemporary American Music Recording Projects

Monday, December 22nd, 2014

Deadline: January 15, 2015

In keeping with his lifelong devotion to contemporary music, American composer Aaron Copland created the Aaron Copland Fund for Music and bequeathed to it a large part of his estate. Officially launched in 1992, the fund’s purpose is to encourage and improve public knowledge and appreciation of contemporary American music.

To advance its mission, the fund’s Recording Program is designed to support projects that document and provide wider exposure for the music of contemporary American composers, and/or develop audiences for contemporary American music through distribution of recorded performances in physical and online media, as well as the production of new recordings of contemporary American music and the reissue of significant recordings that are no longer available. Preference will be given to first recordings. Reissues of significant recordings are eligible only if the music is not available from any other sources(e.g., ArkivMusic, Amazon, or other Internet services)at the time of application. The fund favors works that were composed more recently and is interested primarily in supporting recordings of works by living American composers and those  recently deceased.

In general, grants will not exceed $20,000.

Proposals may be submitted by nonprofit professional performance ensembles, presenting institutions, and nonprofit or commercial recording companies. Non-professionals and students are not eligible. Projects sponsored by universities and similar educational institutions are not eligible.

Visit the Aaron Copland Fund for Music for complete program guidelines, an FAQ, and application instructions.

H E R A G A L L E R Y – Call for Entries for WATER

Friday, December 12th, 2014

Juror: Dina Deitsch is Curator of Contemporary Art at deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum in Lincoln, MA Concept: Water is the medium of life. We are born from water and remain mostly water until we return to dust. Water in dynamic cyclic flow forms 70% of the earth’s surface creating interconnected patterns of life in scaled interrelationships. Civilizations have flourished
and evolved by harnessing the flow of water. Water has been essential for economic growth and has become a playground for fun and adventure. We are inspired by the beauty and
sublime nature of water. These days, contemporary water issues are also creating debates over conflicting interests at local and global levels. Concerns over enough clean drinking water, rising sea levels, powerful storms or droughts spurred by what most believe are climate change forces, fracking and energy needs, and transnational controls of water rights are just some of our worries. This national juried exhibition at Hera Gallery seeks a varied perspective on contemporary views of water as an essential element. Political, social, environmental and aesthetic themes related to water in all media will be considered.  Application Deadline: Friday, February 6th, 2015. Full prospectus here:  https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-KR8EV4V305Nkl5ZDB4a3BST1k/view?usp=sharing
