Community Music Partnership – How it Works

The sponsoring organization fills out a Request for Musical Support and sends it to the applicable Councilperson’s office at the address shown below, along with a letter of request, for Metro Council approval.  Note:  All requests for CMP-funded support must be approved by the Metro Council.  The Metro Councilperson’s office will inform the organization if their request can be accommodated. 

Mail to: [Applicable Councilperson]
Louisville Metro Council
601 W. Jefferson Street
Louisville, KY  40202

If approved, the Councilperson’s office will fax a copy to us, and we will process the paperwork and coordinate the musicians’ performance with the requesting organization and the Bandleader.  Note: While all this may appear to be complicated and time consuming, most requests are processed via fax and can be completed within a day and, in some cases, within hours upon receipt!
