Roulette's Commissions and Residencies Program

In partnership with the Jerome Foundation since 1983, Roulette has founded both a Commissioning Program for four artists annually (officially established in 1997), and an Artist Residency Program for five artists annually (established in 2010). These programs accelerate the careers of talented musical creators, giving them the financial and technical resources to create early signature work in our state-of-the-art theater.

While commissions are selected by a committee of nominators, and residencies are selected by our Artistic Director, we are always excited to learn about NYC artists creating new, experimental musical work. Please email with a proposal and work samples to introduce yourself to us!
