9 New Additions to the Impact Fund Cohort

9 New Additions to the Impact Fund Cohort
June 14, 2017

We are thrilled to announce that 9 organizations have been selected to join the cohort of the NYC New Music Impact Fund. The Impact Fund cohort is a group of 33 NYC-based ensembles, presenters, and venues tackling challenges facing the NYC new music community today, creating a vibrant public identity for the sector, building connections and collaborations, and finding innovative solutions to the need for increased performance and rehearsal space.  

The Impact Fund represents the first major effort to aggregate and amplify the voice of the New York new music community online. It supports new residency relationships, provides general operating support, and leverages our online platform to share events and news with a growing fan base. Sign up to have a listing of the cohort’s upcoming events sent to your inbox each week, and to stay in the know about what they are up to.

About The New York City New Music Impact Fund

The New York City New Music Impact Fund, now in its second year, is a three-year program that was launched in 2016 through a $495,000 grant from The Scherman Foundation’s Axel and Katherine Rosin Fund, that distributes general operating and residency grants to smaller new music ensembles, venues, and presenters (many of which are artist-led) and uses our web platform to create a home for the community and market their work in new and creative ways.

The new cohort members were selected by the following panelists:

Courteney Casey, Senior Director of Artistic Planning National Sawdust; Managing Director VisionIntoArt | Charles Jarden, General Director American Opera Projects | Gina Izzo, flutist, Co-Founder RighteousGIRLS, Manager Public Programs Chamber Music America | Mari Kimura, violinist, composer | Nathalie Joachim, flutist, composer, Flutronix, Eighth Blackbird | Robert Reddy, composer, saxophonist
