The Roger Shapiro Fund for New Music
Dina Koston
Established by composer/pianist Dina Koston, who named the fund after her husband, psychiatrist Roger Shapiro, the Roger Shapiro Fund is a new fund for commissioning, performance and recording of New Music. Ms. Koston intended the fund to promote music in the Western modernist tradition.

The Roger Shapiro Fund is concerned with:

–new music, not limited by geographical region
–education in music, composition, and international outreach
–promoting further knowledge and appreciation of the music of founder Dina Koston.

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.

Education

It is very important to us at the Roger Shapiro Fund that music education and the creation of new music be a priority for each new generation! We foster opportunities for young people to study and perform new music, study composition and present their own compositions. We are particularly interested in promoting international musical studies and exchanges in the hope that broader, deeper musical and cultural connections will lead young people to a greater understanding of what unifies us as inhabitants of the globe.

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.
