The Grant will be funded at $5,000 annually. Recipients will be chosen from active performers who embrace the Great American Songbook.
It is our intention to help these performers start their process to rehearse, appear live, or record their music. The gift may be given to one or divided among as many as five persons per year.
There is no preference regarding age or professional experience. As the wonderful friend of the ASA /Cabaret Scenes Sarah Rice says, “There is no expiration date in Cabaret!”
Selected cabaret owners from the US and the UK will be asked to nominate two performers from their venue. Recipients will be chosen by the ASA Board.
Craig Pomranz is an internationally known performer and children’s book author who, through these gifts, seeks to preserve the legacy of the Great American Songbook of the past and present.
