JAZZ MUSICIANS: APPLY FOR THE CMA/FACE FRENCH AMERICAN JAZZ EXCHANGE

Chamber Music America
Jointly administered by Chamber Music America, the cultural services department of the French Embassy and the French American Cultural Exchange, the CMA/FACE French American Jazz Exchange supports small jazz ensembles and/or individual musicians from France and the United States, or their territories, who wish to engage in a collaborative project in one or both countries. The project must feature at least one public performance and may include such activities as touring, recording and audience development. Eligible projects will be directed by a lead jazz partner from one country working with a collaborating jazz partner(s) from another country and performing with an ensemble of two to ten musicians from one or both countries. Projects are eligible if they advance an adventurous musical idea using traditional, straight-ahead and/or experimental concepts; create new music composed by one or both partners; explore new music by one or both partners that may not necessarily result in a finished composition; and/or bring partners together for the first time to play one partner’s existing music or music by both partners. Complete guidelines and application are available at the CMA Web site.
