The American Music Project is a nonprofit foundation that hopes to put a brighter spotlight on the American repertory, old and new, and to commission new works. “The goal of the foundation,” Mr. Johnson said in a statement, “is to facilitate more performances of our great musical legacy, as well as to raise awareness and, ultimately, help increase the amount of American music that is performed regularly in our concert halls and opera houses.”

DoE will now consider our comments as well as other public comments in fashioning final priorities to be used for its discretionary grant programs.
