Composer Residencies from New Music USA and the League

New Music USA and the League of American Orchestras are eager to find new ways for composers and orchestras to work together. With that in mind, we are extending League members an exciting new opportunity through the New Partnerships dimension of our Music Alive program.

New Partnerships gives composers and orchestras a chance to work directly together. We work alongside orchestras accepted into the program to match each with a composer chosen from a curated list. The program provides the funds for a one-week residency around the performance of a pre-existing (though not necessarily previously performed) work. The residency week can take place anytime between the fall of 2014 and the spring of 2016.

The first step is simple - just let us know you’re interested in taking part. If your orchestra is chosen to participate, we expect to be able to offer you a possible composer match in the first quarter of 2014. We anticipate awarding at least ten residencies.
