The Performing Arts Consortium (TPAC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 2008 in Hilton Head, South Carolina. It is governed by a volunteer board of directors with significant music and business experience. TPAC identifies, arranges and supports performance and educational opportunities that nurture the professional development of young classical musicians.
TPAC accepts applications and recommendations throughout the year. The Board of Directors meets monthly to review the submitted requests.
TPAC's international network consists of professional musicians, composers, college and university professors who identify, advise and recommend young musicians that qualify for financial assistance. Former award recipients may recommend other young artists to apply for TPAC's support.
TPAC has the support of patrons who believe that the future of classical music lives in the young artists of today.
