Grants to this Grantee
for general operating support  
Led by artistic director Steven Schick, San Francisco Contemporary Music Players presents the infrequently performed music of 21st- and late-20th-century composers. Its ensemble is made up entirely of union musicians, who are guaranteed a professional wage, pension, and a minimum level of paid work. Each year, the organization presents seven concerts and two community events for approximately 2,000 people. Renewed funding will help the organization maintain the quantity of its programming, while continuing its efforts to increase and diversify its audience.
for general operating support  
San Francisco Contemporary Music Players presents the infrequently performed music of 21st and late 20th century composers through five subscription concerts each year. To encourage more people to experience the adventurous genre of new music, it also occasionally offers large-scale, easier-to-understand public events; educational programs; and a series of smaller concerts with lectures. The organization reaches a total of 2,100 people annually. Renewed funding would support the forty-year-old organization’s efforts to refine its programming, diversify its income, and expand its board.
