Performing arts organizations and educational institutions may request support to engage conductors, directors, coaches, and coach/performers who have been designated “Kurt Weill Mentors” by the Kurt Weill Foundation. The purpose of a Kurt Weill Mentor’s involvement is to enhance the performance of Weill’s or Blitzstein’s stage or concert works; this might, for example, take the form of presentations of workshops, master classes, or coaching sessions. Proposals to engage a Mentor for the purpose of giving pre-performance lectures are not eligible for support. Initiatives involving a Mentor may be considered even when the relevant performances would not otherwise be eligible for support under the Foundation’s grant guidelines. Applicants should contact the Foundation for further information. If an application is successful, the Foundation will recommend appropriate Mentors for specific projects.
