We are partnering with APRA AMCOS to boost its $100,000 Art Music Fund, so more artists can create more music to share with audiences here and overseas.
Australia is home to some of the most innovative and talented creators of live music, and the pool of musicians with ideas and sounds to share is growing.
The Art Music Fund exists to commission new work that is innovative, displays professional compositional craft and represents a benchmark of excellence in its field.
In 2016, its inaugural year, the APRA AMCOS Art Music Fund funded 12 established and emerging composers, including percussionist Matthias Schack-Arnott, who took out the Development Award at the Melbourne Prize for Music in 2016, and composer Liza Lim, for her major new work Wayfaring in the Weather World for renowned Ensemble Klangforum Wien, based in Vienna.
Through the Double the Score campaign, your donation will support the commissioning of new music that is bold in its conception and excellent in its execution. It will help artists bring their work to life around the world in diverse contexts, from concert halls to festivals, or on radio and online.
Need more of an incentive? We will match your donations to Double the Score, dollar for dollar, up to $12,000. Donate $100; and the fund will get a $200 boost. Donate $1000; and the next generation of music composers will receive $2000.
Join us as we raise money to support the development and performance of new music from Australia’s creators of extraordinary sounds.
Double the Score runs until 20 March 2017.
Like all projects on the ACF, donations over $2 are tax deductible.
