evolving in contemporary culture?
The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage’s music program was initiated in 1989 to foster artistic excellence and innovation in the region’s music community. The music program meets this objective by supporting commissions and productions of new works, presentations of large-scale, rarely performed, or culturally significant works or repertoires, interdisciplinary collaborations, and similar programmatic enhancements. Music organizations, independent presenters, and individual artists working in any genre may apply for grants to present adventurous and imaginative work.
