We inaugurated the Matt Marks Impact Fund in June 2018 in order to enable us to tackle projects that are ever more forward-thinking, and to help us diversify the pool of composers and artists with whom we collaborate. We named the Fund in memory of our friend and founding member who passed away suddenly in 2018. Matt was passionate about expanding the boundaries of classical music through stylistic diversity and the inclusion of artists from all backgrounds. We remain deeply committed to his legacy.
MMIF is about taking risks with creators we believe will significantly change the ways in which art is created in our field. These projects expand styles and practices; they also diversify the artistic and personal perspectives that we share with our audiences, through intentional efforts to include composers who have been historically marginalized. The Fund enables Alarm Will Sound to boldly tackle ambitious, ground-breaking projects by the most imaginative artists. And the promise of the Fund is to make a systemic and artistic impact.
In addition to receiving commissioning funds to support their project with AWS, MMIF-supported artists receive administrative and production support as well as workshops and rehearsals with the full AWS ensemble to develop their work. Since we launched the Fund, we have supported the development of new work by Alyssa Pyper, Allison Loggins-Hull and Toshi Reagon, Caroline Louise Miller, Rohan Chander, and Damon Davis. We look forward to announcing a new round of applications to the Fund this fall.
Your support of the Matt Marks Impact Fund will ensure we can continue to invest in composers, projects, and practices that increase the inclusivity and social impact of new music.
