The Choral Artists are grateful for the continued support of San Francisco Grants for the Arts / Hotel Tax Fund and The Ann and Gordon Getty Foundation. These two organizations, along with support from corporations matching contributions from our individual donors–AT&T, IBM, and Microsoft, have a marked impact on the level of consistent support that SFCA is able to provide for the creation of new choral music, to Bay Area composers, and for the fostering of young and emerging composers across the USA.
This season we are delighted to receive support from The Zellerbach Foundation Community Arts Program which has provided a grant to help underwrite this season’s Composer-In-Residence programs.
SFCA and Living Composers
Last season we proudly announced the Roger Nixon Living Music Initiative (RNLMI), created by his five children in honor of the eminent composer who was SFCA’s first Composer-In-Residence. The Initiative is designed to significantly advance our commitment to new choral music by doubling funding for SFCA’s composer-focused programs–our New Voices Project for composers under age 30, the Composers’ Invitational, the Composers-In-Residence and Not-in-Residence programs, and the production of new recordings.
We couldn’t have imagined a more significant development as we build on the accomplishments of the last two years:
- Winning the 2012 national ASCAP/Chorus America Award for Adventurous Programming
- Releasing With Strings Attached, our recording with The Alexander String Quartet, favorably reviewed by Fanfare Magazine
- Collaborating with Klezmer trio Veretski Pass—which, by popular demand, returns for a third collaboration in March 2014
As support for RNLMI gathers momentum, the scope of SFCA’s new music initiatives is widening. This season we are expanding our student-composer mentoring program to help foster composition of the great choral works of the future. We are engaged in student-composer outreach at three Bay Area high schools, in addition to our collaboration with San Francisco Conservatory of Music in their Bi-Annual Student Composer Competition.
Won’t you please help usher in this new period of artistic outreach through your generous donation this season?
