The MOMENTUM Commissions
In 2020 the AMC has announced three MOMENTUM commissions with the generous support from private philanthropists and companies. Expressions of Interest for these opportunities have now closed, but this series of commissions has the potential to continue into the future, supporting Australian artists at different stages of their careers.
The first MOMENTUM Commission and the Call for Expression of Interest were announced in July 2020, generously funded by a leading Australian composer. Read more about the winner of this inaugural commission on the MOMENTUM I subpage.
MOMENTUM II for early-career artists was funded by Cinque Artist Management - the amount includes a $4,000 commission fee, and $1,000 as a contribution to the performance/realisation of the work. Read more about the winner of this opportunity on the MOMENTUM II subpage.
MOMENTUM III - Sue W COVID-19 Special Commissions
This opportunity for female composers is a new partnership between the Australian Music Centre and the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, generously sponsored by Mrs Sue Willgoss and Associate Professor Richard Willgoss. Winners of three commissions were announced on 12 November 2020. Find out more about the winners on the MOMENTUM III subpage.
