About the Foundation

The Serge Koussevitzky Music Foundation in the Library of Congress was established as an expression of Dr. Koussevitzky's gratitude to the creators to whom we owe our musical heritage and who are providing our legacy to the future. Throughout his distinguished career, Dr. Koussevitzky continued his broad international interest in contemporary music, and felt a special responsibility for American composers to whom he became friend, colleague and advisor.

The Foundation considers applications from performing organizations from any country for the joint commissioning of composers of all nationalities
