American Musicological Society, Inc. (New York, NY 10012-1502)
Andrew Kuster (Project Director: December 2017 to present)
Music of the United States of America (MUSA)

Preparation for publication of five volumes in the series Music of the United States of America. (36 months)

Music of the United States of America (MUSA) is a series of scholarly editions of music that aims to represent the depth and diversity of our nation’s heritage by publishing musical works of exemplary artistic quality and historical significance, targeting scholars, performers, students, and the general public. MUSA seeks to expand the art of critical editing beyond classical concert music to include new genres and styles previously unaddressed by the discipline, including music created by women and minorities, and other composers historically excluded from academic research. MUSA is a project of the American Musicological Society (AMS), the premier organization in the United States devoted to musical scholarship, and is guided by its Committee on the Publication of American Music (COPAM), which serves as MUSA’s editorial board. Each MUSA edition is exhaustively researched by expert Volume Editors and typically is newly engraved by the award-winning music publisher A-R Editions.

Anne W. Robertson (Project Director: May 2006 to November 2011)
Publishing Musicologal Research in the 21st Century

Endowment for publication subventions and an award program in musicology as well as fund-raising costs.

The American Musicological Society seeks an NEH challenge grant of $240,000, which with a 4:1 match will yield $1,200,000. These funds will endow four publication-related initiatives of the Society. The bulk of the funds ($900,000) will create a new subvention supporting the publication of first books by young scholars, whose work often represents the cutting edge of scholarly research, but whose careers are often at their most fragile or challenging point. The remainder will go primarily to existing publication subvention programs, supporting musicological books more generally ($125,000) as well as a monograph series sponsored by the Society ($100,000). These subventions aim to optimize the quality of the best scholarly books on music while keeping their prices affordable. Finally, we propose a new award for books on music in American culture ($50,000), a vital area of musical research that appeals to the broadest literary and musical public.
