416 Club Commissions: Request for Proposals

416 Club Commissions logo

The Cedar is thrilled to announce a fourth round of the 416 Club Commissions Program. With funding from The Jerome Foundation, The Cedar will commission six local, emerging artists to compose and perform new music. Each of the first three rounds has proven to be a great opportunity for musicians to showcase their skills and abilities through a unique, commissioned project. We expect the fourth round to be nothing less.

Each composer/artist participating in the 416 Club Commissions will:

• Create, at minimum, a half hour of new music (new is defined as music that has not been previously recorded or performed)

• Debut the commission in a public concert performance at The Cedar

• Participate in a commission showcase event that will include on-stage interviews, a Q&A session, and a brief performance with the other 416 artists

• Participate in a final evaluation
