  • Jazz & New Music Program
    In 2004, FACE Foundation and the Cultural Services of the French Embassy created two music programs encouraging collaborations between French and American artists and ensembles in the field of jazz and contemporary music: the French-American Jazz Exchange and the Contemporary Music Fund, later renamed the New Music Fund. Since 2019, the Jazz & New Music program – a merger of the two previous programs – continues to support fruitful collaborations in the following ways:  supporting new French-American commissions and creations; supporting United States based residencies for French composers and musicians; supporting tours in the United States by French ensembles and musicians.
