MEMBER BENEFITS AND PRIVILEGES

Founded in 2017 by Board Member and visionary, Deborah H. Downey, the New Works Fund is entering its second year.  In its first year, it funded the creation of Chant, which premiered in June 2018 with resounding acclaim for its new and powerful work with Gregorian Chant.  It also funded the restaging of the poignant Vespers, which received its Washington DC premiere also in June.  Members of the New Works Fund are invited to witness the creative process of each ballet as it unfolds from concept, to rehearsal, to stage with exclusive access throughout the year.

New Works Fund Members receive many opportunities to be part of the creative process and interact with guest choreographers and artists.  Members contribute $1000 or more annually.  If donating through PayPal, we ask that you please add 3% for our payment processing fess. You can also mail checks to Chamber Dance Project at 700 12th Street NW, Suite 700, Washington DC, 20005.
