The Pew Charitable Trusts is driven by the power of knowledge to solve today's most challenging problems. Pew applies a rigorous, analytical approach to improve public policy, inform the public and stimulate civic life.
The Philadelphia Music Project fosters artistic excellence and innovation in the region’s nonprofit music community. Launched in 1989, the project is now part of the Pew Center for Arts and Heritage and is administered by the University of the Arts.
The Philadelphia Music Project supports the commission and production of new works, presentations of large-scale or long-neglected works, interdisciplinary collaborations, and other programmatic enhancements. Grants are awarded on a competitive basis, are selected by a distinguished national panel of experts, and support projects without regard to musical genre.
The project also sponsors seminars and conferences on topics such as marketing, audience development, music technology, and music outreach programming—as well as interdisciplinary, cross-genre, and multicultural composition and performance. Consulting services and modest grants for professional development are also provided.
Examples of Philadelphia Music Project-supported events include a performance of music from the traditions of Liberia and South Africa at World Café Live and premieres of new musical works at the Independence Seaport Museum or at the Kimmel Center.
