The mission of the Andrew S. Way Music Foundation is to nurture the relationships between composer, performer, and listener by providing educational opportunities that will challenge and inspire musicians to create and be part of new music.
THE ANDREW S. WAY FOUNDATION STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
The Andrew S. Way Music Foundation is committed to the composition, education, and performance of new music. The process by which this is achieved has two major components: first the grant selects composers to write new music (for a school or organization), then music educators apply for the opportunity to perform the music with their ensembles in live concert. When the two are matched, the foundation will also help facilitate and encourage communication between the composer, the educator, and the ensemble. Currently accepting all applicants from the Bay Area.
The Andrew S. Way Foundation welcomes composer and school/organization applicants from all walks of life and musical paths, and is dedicated to supporting all types of music.
