Connecting Composers

Reaching New Audiences

In addition to traditional concert venues, the Roger Shapiro Fund is interested in developing new ways for new music to reach people, including radio, television & internet, recording projects, new music in public spaces, real or virtual and innovative collaborations with other arts disciplines.
