American Composers Forum

The AMERICAN COMPOSERS FORUM, Saint Paul, Minnesota, received a two-year grant of $197,000 in support of various programs supporting emerging composers. The Forum enriches lives by nurturing the creative spirit of composers and communities. It provides new opportunities for composers and their music to flourish, and engages communities in the creation, performance, and enjoyment of new music. Jerome support is directed toward the Jerome Fund for New Music, which provides support to emerging composers based in New York City and Minnesota. Dollars will support commissions and enhancement funds to further the development and reach of the commissions. This is an open application program with selection by an independent panel. Jerome funding also supports the Minnesota Emerging Composer Awards. Through a nomination process, emerging composers working in world music, jazz, and electronic forms are commissioned to create and produce new works.
