What's behind this award?
Help fund performances
Music makes a difference. And we support writing music. In many
The project provides direct support for collaborative creation of
music by emerging composers, including its staging, filming, video,
live performance and recording. Admission to public events funded by
the project is always free.
Funds you give here are used directly to pay musicians, dancers,
choreographers, composers, venue, and the stage and tech experts for
the public performances. The program is sponsored and administered
by skyHi Digital, which fills the gap between what we raise and what
we spend on these performances. (Your donation goes directly to
those we support, and is not tax-deductible.)
