Since 2009, this annual residency has given composers suitable creative space in a NYC cultural facility. More about this program

Applications for the 2016-17 Composers’ Residency are now closed. This year’s composers-in-residence have been announced.


Two residency programs have emerged from our 2014 Queens Workspace Initiative. The first, in Jamaica, Queens, is for choreographer-composer teams. The second, being piloted in the Ridgewood Bushwick neighborhood of Brooklyn/Queens, is for composers only.

Applications for the EtM Ridgewood Bushwick Composer Residency are being accepted now through October 31, 2016.
