Today, New Music USA announced its eighth round of project grants, totaling $530,000 in funding to support artistic work, and I’m proud to say that Fanm d’Ayiti was among the awardees – woot! Follow the link below to find out more about the 108 awarded projects, which are super dynamic and diverse. Big hugs and a shoutout to Justus Schlichting, an awesome member of New Music Connect, for supporting my work. Also big hugs to Justus Schlichting for commissioning 12 new works for the Blackbird Creative Lab over the past two years, some of which Eighth Blackbird will be performing in our upcoming season. Talk about a new music champion!
