    Are you interested in commission a piece written especially for you? Would you like to provide educational outreach opportunities where your audiences and students can learn from an experienced composer, performer, author and educator? Are you interested in producing a CD for distribution to the public and for sale to your audiences? If you are, then the Co-op Press Fund Grant Programs, which strongly support the College Music Society's Community Engagement initiative, whose goal is to encourage all musicians to "create more environments where more people can Live Through Music ", can help you achieve your goals of reaching out to your audiences to share your enthusiasm for your art.

    The Commission Assistance Grant Program enables performers to have a piece composed especially for them by composer, Sy Brandon, in order to generate audience and performer excitement about a world premiere. The Commission Assistance Grant includes a residency where the composer works with the musicians and speaks to the audience. This grant is available to performers (elementary through professional) in the continental United States. Deadlines for receipt of the application are April 1, July 1 October 1, and January 1 of each year.

    The Residency Assistance Grant enables performers to have composer, Sy Brandon, work closely with them on a pre-existing composition of his, to speak to audiences and instruct in individual and group settings. This grant is available to performers (elementary through professional) in the continental United States. Applications are accepted throughout the year.

    The Recording Grant enables talented performers to produce a professional quality CD through Emeritus Recordings. The CD will receive commercial distribution through physical and digital retail outlets and promotion through broadcast, advertisement and reviews. The CD will also be made available to the artists on a consignment basis for sale to their audiences. The CD must include at least one composition of composer, Sy Brandon, and can include a piece written by him especially for this recording.
