American Fund for Contemporary Music supports contemporary
music projects commissions, residencies, performances,
tours, and master classes that foster cultural exchange
between France and the United States.
The Fund awards grants to nonprofit institutions celebrating
the work of living composers in both countries. Collaborations
combining new French and American works are especially encouraged.
A direct outgrowth of Sounds French, a festival
of contemporary French music held in March 2003 in New York
City, the Fund supports French-American contemporary music
The French-American Fund For Contemporary Music, is a program of FACE, in partnership with the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the U.S. and is made possible by the Florence Gould Foundation, SACEM and the Institut Français.
