Presenters Consortium for Jazz

This application cycle is currently closed.


In response to the needs of our presenter community through the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2022 Presenter Consortium for Jazz program invites applications for limited in-person audience, hybrid or digital-only presentations. The program provides support to consortiums of three U.S. presenters that collectively engage up to three professional U.S. jazz ensembles (consisting of 2-10 musicians each) to stream, livestream or present in-person limited audience performances at each presenter’s venue.


The Board of Directors of Chamber Music America has made diversity, inclusion, and equity a primary focus of the organization's work. CMA’s goal in this program is, through the panel review process, to arrive at a final slate of grantees that is representative of the field in terms of the race, gender and jazz style of the ensembles that the consortium partners have chosen to present.
