The Tri-Centric Foundation

The Tri-Centric Foundation is a not-for-profit organization that supports the ongoing work and legacy of Anthony Braxton, while also cultivating and inspiring the next generation of creative artists to pursue their own visions with the kind of idealism and integrity Braxton has demonstrated throughout his long and distinguished career.

The Tri-Centric Foundation's activities are supported in part by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, through the Doris Duke Performing Artist Award and the MAP Fund (also supported in part by the Mellon Foundation), the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York State Council on the Arts, the Aaron Copland Fund for Music, MediaThe Foundation, the Charles and Cerise Jacobs Charitable Foundation, the Torsten Wiesel Commissioning Award, our individual donors, the board and membership of the Tri-Centric Foundation, and friendly experiencers everywhere.

Announcing the Torsten Wiesel Commissioning Award

Nobel Prize winner Dr. Torsten Wiesel and Tri-Centric are proud to announce a new commissioning award celebrating Dr. Wiesel's 90th birthday, honoring a lifetime of engagement with experimental music, a history of mentorship and education, and the deep connections between the creative processes of the sciences and the arts. The Torsten Wiesel Commissioning Award will offer an emerging or mid-career composer the too-rare opportunity to explore their ideas for larger ensemble, creating a new work to be premiered in 2015 by the Tri-Centric Orchestra under Braxton's mentorship and guidance.
