MetLife "Meet the Composer" Competition

Administered by Meet the Composer, the MetLife Creative Connections program provides support for American composers to participate in public activities related to specific performances of their original music. By supporting the composer's interaction with audiences, performers, arts organizations, and local communities, the program aims to increase public awareness and enhance the creative artist's role in society.

The program is open to U.S. composers and U.S-based sponsoring organizations. Applications are submitted by the sponsoring organization (a presenter, ensemble, dance company, etc.) requesting support for one or more composers (up to six). Grants are awarded to support the composer's participation fee for outreach activities.

There are no limits or restrictions on the style or genre of music to be performed or presented.

Amount: $250 - $5000

Date due: June 1, 2010
