Kurt Weill Foundation Expands Grant Program
In the area of education, the Kurt Weill Foundation has added a new mentorship category to the Grant Program, entitled 'Kurt Weill Mentors.' Under this program, performing arts organizations and educational institutions may request financial support to engage performers, conductors, directors, and scholars who have been designated 'Weill Mentors' by the Kurt Weill Foundation, to aid in the preparation of Weill or Blitzstein stage or concert performances, present workshops or lectures, or participate in scholarly symposia. Such requests may be considered even when the relevant performances would not otherwise be eligible for support under the Foundation's grant program. Applicants should contact the Foundation for further information, and the Foundation will recommend appropriate Weill Mentors for specific projects.
Grant Program details and guidelines are available on the Kurt Weill Foundation's website at: http://www.kwf.org/grants-a-prizes/grant-program. Inquiries may be directed to Carolyn Weber, Director.
The Kurt Weill Foundation for Music, Inc. (http://www.kwf.org) is dedicated to promoting understanding of the life and works of composer Kurt Weill (1900-1950) and preserving the legacies of Weill and his wife, actress-singer Lotte Lenya (1898-1981). The Foundation administers the Weill-Lenya Research Center, a Grant Program, the Kurt Weill Book Prize, and the Lotte Lenya Competition, and publishes the Kurt Weill Edition and the Kurt Weill Newsletter.
