The Amphion Foundation was established by Elliott and Helen Carter to encourage the performance of contemporary concert music, particularly by American composers, through support to performing and presenting organizations that have demonstrated sustained artistic excellence, in addition to service organizations. The Foundation’s mission is carried out through its grant program, which has grown since its inception to encompass two rounds: a Spring round for performing ensembles and a Fall round for music service organizations, presenters, and festivals.
The next Fall deadline for the Amphion Grant Program will be September 30, 2020.
