Composers Now Awarded Transformative Grant from the Rockefeller Brothers Fund
Composers Now has been awarded a transformative grant from the Rockefeller Brothers Fund for 2015. The support will allow Composers Now to continue to deepen its commitment to composers, both through the annual festival in NYC's five boroughs, and through the expansion of its current programs. The grant also allows for the possibility of new initiatives in support of the organization's mission.
The Composers Now Festival celebrates and honors living composers, the diversity of their voices and the significance of their contributions to the cultural fabric of our society. Presented collaboratively with organizations throughout the five boroughs during the month of February, the festival features a broad spectrum of performances in concert halls, jazz clubs, opera stages, experimental and non-traditional spaces, conservatories and museums. Featured composers are in attendance at all events, participating in concerts, lectures and panels designed to put a public face on the art form that captures the vitality and innovations that composers of all genres bring to our communities.
