Mary is honored to announce that she haas been selected for a 2017 Iguana Music Fund grant by the wonderful Iguana Music Fund and Club Passim!
Here is more information on this wonderful program from the official Iguana Music Fund website!:
“The Iguana Music Fund is an annual grant program predominantly funded by a generous anonymous donor, plus the help of Passim, sponsorships, and community donations.
“Each year the Iguana Music Fund gives approximately $40,000 in grants to individual artists in amounts from $500 to $2,000 each. Grants are used for projects and expenses to aid in artists’ career growth, and range from recording projects to community programs to specialized equipment or instruments.
“The Iguana Music Fund was established in 2008 after a generous anonymous donation was given with the intention of helping artists pursue their musical goals. Artists often have the talent and ideas to create incredible music, but they do not always have the financial capacity to do so. To help musicians overcome financial limitations, the Iguana Music Fund awards annual grants to artists with a residential or tour-based affiliation to New England. Since 2008, more than $300,000 in grants has funded more than 160 projects.”
Thanks to the generosity of the Iguana Music Fund and Club Passim, Mary’s grant award will cover the funds for all travel expenses to and from her composer residency at the The Helene Wurlitzer Foundation of New Mexico in September-December 2018.
THANK YOU so much to the Iguana Music Fund and Club Passim for this great honor, and for all of your support of musicians in New England and beyond! And congratulations to all of the 2017 winners!
