Amphion Foundation Accepting Applications From Performing Musical Ensembles
Amphion Foundation


The Amphion Foundation was established in 1987 to encourage the performance of contemporary concert music, particularly by American composers, through support to performing and presenting organizations that have demonstrated sustained artistic excellence.

To that end, the foundation is accepting applications from nonprofit performing ensembles, presenters, and music service organizations for general operating support or support for special projects.

Typically, the program awards grants of up to $7,500, although larger grants may be awarded to larger performing organizations with an extraordinary commitment to contemporary concert music or a particularly significant project.

To be eligible, applicants must be a nonprofit performing ensemble, presenter, or music service organization with a history of substantial commitment to contemporary concert music at a high level of excellence. Organizations applying for a grant must have been in existence for at least two years. Performing ensembles, presenters, or organizations that are applying for support for performances must have presented two full seasons prior to the season for which support is requested, except for special projects of extraordinary significance. In general, the grant program does not support jazz music.
