The PRS Foundation has announced that the Resonate fund has re-opened for applications. The fund aims to encourage professional orchestras to programme into their repertoire the best pieces of British music from the past 25 years. Grants of up to £10,000 are available to orchestras who commit to exploring contemporary UK repertoire as part of a season/tour and longer-term audience development programme.
The Resonate fund is open to all full and associate ABO members and selected pieces of music must have been written by British composers, who are members of PRS for Music or in a position to join.
Performances must be part of a main season programme, major festival or tour. Orchestras can apply for funding to help cover the following:
- Music Hire;
- Orchestral rehearsal time;
- Instrument Hire; Performer fees;
- Promotion/Performance of work;
- Touring Costs in the UK.
The closing date for applications in this round is the 2nd December 2019.
