The Music Program fosters the creation, production, and performance of musical events of outstanding professional quality. Music offers support for public performances by established and emerging professional music organizations representing a broad spectrum of musical expression. Music also offers support for services to nonprofit music organizations and artists, community schools of music, and projects exploring new technology in music.
Support is provided for organizations producing chamber music, choral music, early music, jazz, new music, opera and orchestral music.
Applicants producing performances are encouraged to explore new and recent repertoire, unless their mission is specific to a particular period of music. The Music Program encourages innovative programming and adventuresome approaches to performance and presentation.
Funding for national organizations is only provided for specific activities occurring in New York State.
Organizations and/or individuals requesting support for Music Commissions should refer to the Individual Artists guidelines.
