American Masterpieces: Three Centuries of Artistic Genius is a major initiative to acquaint Americans with the best of their cultural and artistic legacy. Through American Masterpieces, the National Endowment for the Arts will sponsor performances, exhibitions, tours, and educational programs across all art forms that will reach large and small communities in all 50 states. The Choral Music component of this initiative will celebrate the extraordinary and rich evolution of choral music in the United States. Through performances of significant American choral music with related educational activities in regional choral festivals, music of the highest quality that otherwise would not be available will be experienced by Americans in communities across the nation. The NEA will provide grants to host regional choral festivals that will highlight the repertoire of selected American composers (see the program announcement for the list of composers) and include the participation of choral directors, composers, and other choruses.
