Foundation Announces March Grants and Gift

This month, the foundation is pleased to announce the following production grants and a gift:

  • A grant to Fractured Atlas, New York City, to support the production of Paula Kimper’s opera Patience & Sarah, A Pioneering Love Story. The new orchestration of the three-act opera will be presented by the Paula Kimper Ensemble in two staged concert performances on June 23 and 24 at The Players Theatre, 115 McDougal Street in Manhattan. The complete opera has not been publicly performed since its 1998 premiere.
  • A grant to Evolution Theatre Company of Columbus, Ohio, to support the production, later this year, of the play Abraham Lincoln Was a Faggot, by Bixby Elliot.
  • A gift to Houston Grand Opera to help defray expenses for the recording of the new opera Prince of Players, by Carlisle Floyd. The foundation had previously supported the world premiere production of the opera, mounted by the HGO earlier this month.
