Large-Scale (Multi-Season) Professional Projects

In addition to its established grant program, the Kurt Weill Foundation cultivates relationships with professional arts organizations and leading educational institutions. Such organizations may approach the Foundation with ideas for major projects, and the Foundation may on occasion present proposals to the organizations. Such projects are developed through extended discussion between the Foundation and the organizations, and the Foundation provides substantial funding in order to make them possible. Priorities for sponsorship include the following:

  • Production and recording of Weill stage works that have not yet been recorded.
  • Major productions of stage works that promise artistic excellence.
  • Festivals featuring Weill's music in a broader context, perhaps containing scholarly elements.
  • Weill performances in series over more than one season.
  • Addition of substantial educational program elements to major festivals, series, etc.
