Event Details


Subito grants provide critical funding to composers for creative projects that can help them grow artistically and professionally. Grants range from $500 to $3,000 and can be used for a variety of purposes, including, but not limited to: performer fees; recording fees; concert expenses (ex. performer fees, venue rental); travel expenses associated with the production of new music; and score production (ex. arranging, engraving, copying/printing costs). Requests for equipment (software, hardware, computers, or musical instruments) will not be accepted. Subito aims to give a boost to the careers of composers who are strongly dedicated to their art, who show artistic merit, and who propose an excellent project. We wish to award grants to varied artists from the many genres of music represented in the Philadelphia area.


Individual composers in the Philadelphia region are eligible to apply. Applicants need not be members of the American Composers Forum to apply; however, artists whose projects are funded must become ACF members and remain ACF members for the duration of the project. To join ACF online, visit the website.

In order to encourage greater access to and broader distribution of the resources available, ACF Philadelphia will fund only one Subito project per year for the same applicant. Composers who receive a Subito grant must sit out one round before applying again. Grants will be made to composers residing in, or projects occurring in, the following six counties: Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, or Philadelphia Counties in PA and Camden County in NJ.

Subito grants cannot be used as honoraria to composers for writing a piece of music.
