The performing artists' rights group on Gramex's board has decided that a share of the royalties collected by Gramex on behalf of the music performers for, in particular, radio stations' use of published sound recordings, is used for cultural and educational purposes.
Korsangernes Fællesråd distributes the share of these funds that accrues to the choir area.
The collective rights funds can be applied for by all performing artists, choirs and ensembles. There can, among other things, apply for grants for concerts, music releases, study trips, tours, professional development, etc.
The Choirs' Joint Council primarily distributes support for purposes related to choral singing and singing in general, within the areas of music promotion measures and professional development.
Next application deadline: 1st of May 2024
