Spread the word! Year two of the Local 802 Emerging Artists Project is almost here, and applications will open on Dec. 1. The EAP is a four-year, $10,000-per-year grant program designed to encourage and mentor ensembles new to the music scene and the union. The project is open to all groups of three or more players in any genre of music who live or work in the New York tri-state area and who have been performing together for at least one year. Anyone interested in applying should click here between Dec. 1 and Dec. 31, 2018. Applicants' work will be adjudicated by respected members from all areas of the NY musical community. Grants will be awarded in early 2019. This year's winner will join the exciting Roxy Coss Quintet, our first EAP winner, as recipients of this award. Good luck to all!
