New Music USA and the Talea Ensemble are thrilled to introduce the inaugural cohort of the NYC New Music Impact Fund. The Impact Fund, a new project of New Music USA, represents the first major effort to aggregate and amplify the voice of the New York new music community online. It supports new residency relationships, provides general operating support, and leverages New Music USA’s online platform to share events and news with a growing fan base.

About The New York City New Music Impact Fund

The New York City New Music Impact Fund is a new program, supported by a three-year, $495,000 grant from The Scherman Foundation’s Axel and Katherine Rosin Fund, that distributes general operating and residency grants to smaller new music ensembles, venues, and presenters (many of which are artist-led) and uses our web platform to create a home for the community and market their work in new and creative ways.

The inaugural cohort was selected by the following panelists: Patrick Castillo, composer and executive director of Hotel Elefant | Laura Kaminsky, composer | Allison Loggins-Hull, flutist and co-founder Flutronix, composer, and educator | Kristin Marting, artistic director of HERE | Ryan Muncy, saxophonist, director of institutional giving, and co-director OpenICE with ICE | Kathleen Supové, pianist | Yulun Wang, owner of Pi Records
