Residency Partnership Program
Chamber Music America

The Residency Partnership Program supports professional ensembles and presenters in building audiences for small ensemble music through residency projects. The program funds activities that take place in community settings and that are not part of a regular concert series.

The Board of Directors of Chamber Music America has made diversity, inclusion, and equity a primary focus of the organization's work. CMA seeks to fulfill its vision for the future, where people of all races, religions, genders, and abilities are able to fully participate in the performance, presentation, and enjoyment of the many styles of small ensemble music. Therefore, CMA's goal in this program is, through the panel review process, to arrive at a final slate of grantees that is representative of the field in terms of the ensembles' race, gender, and style of chamber music. Read CMA's Statement of Commitment to Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity.

The Organizing Partner-a presenter or an ensemble-submits the application and is responsible for planning and directing the residency. The Ensemble Partner collaborates on the project plan and carries out the music activities. (An ensemble may act as both Organizing and Ensemble Partner.) Community Partners are local organizations that host project activities and provide audiences. See guidelines for full eligibility requirements.


  • All Partners must be confirmed at the time of application.
  • The Organizing Partner serves as the main contact for the application.
  • All applications must be submitted using the online system
