Please note: Application cycle is currently closed.


Presenter Consortium for Jazz provides support to consortiums of three U. S. presenters that collectively engage up to three professional U.S. jazz ensembles (consisting of 2-10 musicians each) to perform at each presenter’s venue. Incentives are available to each consortium partner that invites one of the CMA New Jazz Works grantee ensembles to perform its entire CMA commission.


The Board of Directors of Chamber Music America has made diversity, inclusion, and equity a primary focus of the organization's work. CMA’s goal in this program is, through the panel review process, to arrive at a final slate of grantees that is representative of the field in terms of the race, gender and jazz style of the ensembles that the consortium partners have chosen to present.

A component of the Doris Duke Jazz Ensembles Project, Presenter Consortium for Jazz is funded by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.
