Performance Grants Available for Ensembles Programming Orchestral Works by Women

In an effort to support and promote performances of orchestral works by historical and contemporary women composers, like the Ruth Lomon orchestration of Rebecca Clarke’s Viola Sonata, Women’s Philharmonic Advocacy is offering Performance Grants again this year! Apply by Oct. 14.
Grants page —

Awards of $500 to $1000 available to all U.S. orchestras. The goal of these grants is to influence future programming; thus funding awarded in the Fall 2016 cycle must be utilized in the 2017 and/or 2018 calendar years.

Women’s Philharmonic Advocacy is a non-profit organization founded to continue the legacy of The Women’s Philharmonic (1980-2004). Committed to honoring and advocating for the work of historic and contemporary women composers, our Performance Grants are central to our mission. We promote the performance of unjustly neglected music and encourage orchestras to engage in adventurous and inclusive programming.
