Our Case for Support
Since its first concerts in 2010, American Century Music has proved adept at making the most out of very limited financial resources. Guided by founding Artistic and Executive Director Scott Parkman and a small, dedicated Board of Directors, an array of superb musicians have performed deserving and generally unknown repertoire in New England, St. Louis, Washington DC, Oklahoma, and abroad.
Our concerts have been very well received by critics and audiences alike (see our Reviews).
Additionally, in early 2013 Scott Parkman launched ACM Radio, a 24/7 streaming online radio station playing commercially available recordings to demonstrate the depth and breadth of repertoire from The American Century. This platform has proven to be an excellent outreach and educational tool – listeners have tuned in from countries all over the world.
Why is the work of American Century Music important?
While there are many performing arts organizations vying for attention and dollars, none are solely focused on American composers from The American Century. It was America’s first century on the world stage; American Century Music is dedicated to making sure that America’s classical music is part of the legacy and discussion.
Where does American Century Music’s funding come from?
Our funding targets three sources:
- Concert Fees
- Donations from Individuals and Corporations
- Grants from Foundations and Government agencies
What’s the big goal for American Century Music?
American Century Music aims to perform repertoire from solo instrument to full orchestra in centers large and small throughout the United States and internationally. We believe the American classical music story during the 20th Century, particularly in the context of everything that happened during those years – two world wars, civil rights, space exploration, Cold War, unprecedented economic growth – is a compelling one. We believe that America’s classical music is deserving and worthy of another look (or a first one). We are confident that with high-quality performances, targeted education initiatives and time, the story of America’s musical contributions to the American Century will be appreciated and enjoyed by listeners worldwide.
