MUSICAL GRANT PROGRAM

FOR PERFORMERS, COMPOSERS, AND PRESENTERS

 

 

REVIEW PROCESS AND SELECTION CRITERIA

 

An independent panel of five experts from the San Francisco Bay Area, representing the diversity of our music community, will review the applications. Their identities will remain secret. The decisions of the panel are final. Below are some of the criteria the panelists will use to judge your application.

 

 

History & Mission/Artistic Vision of the Applicant

Does the Performer or Composer applicant demonstrate a compelling history of significant musical activity by listing performances, repertoire or compositions, major collaborators, career highlights (awards, festival appearances, commissions & premieres, etc), and other pertinent biographical information? Does the Presenter applicant demonstrate a significant history of successful concert presentation, citing past and/or upcoming programming and providing an organization mission statement?

 

 

Project Description

Is there a clear purpose or intention for the project, with a compelling artistic vision that is supported by good planning?

 

 

Artistic Excellence and Potential

Is there a high level of musical ability and potential from a Performer or Composer, and evidence of ability to present high quality concert experiences if applying as a Presenter?

 

 

Impact

Does the applicant address the impact that the project will have on the artists involved and, if applicable, the local community? Does the Presenter applicant address how the project will advance the visibility of the ensemble and/or series in the greater San Francisco Bay Area?

 

 

Publicity/Promotion

Is there a well-defined plan for publicity and/or promotion of the project?

 

 

Timeline

Is the timeline for the project clearly defined and does it support the successful execution of the project?  

 

 

Budget

Is the project budget well thought-out and does it demonstrate that the applicant has the potential resources and capacity to undertake and complete the project?

 

 

Panelists will be aware of prior MGP awardees and their projects. If you have received an award in the past, be sure to make a strong case for why you need to undertake your new proposed project, and why it’s important to do so for this grant cycle.

 

APPLICATION FEEDBACK

 

Feedback about your grant application will be available from SFFCM's Executive Director in May of 2017. Please send an email to mgp@sffcm.org to arrange a time to receive feedback.
