Connecting Composers

The Roger Shapiro Fund aims to arrange for composers to collaborate with organizations, particularly presenting organizations and performing ensembles that have built a sizeable audience or are implementing creative strategies to gain an audience for new music.

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.
