Zeitgeist's Jazz Commissioning Project

As an ensemble animated by a spirit of adventure and collaboration, Zeitgeist is dedicated to the creation and production of new and diverse musical works. This year, Zeitgeist is commissioning four new works from local jazz artists Chris Bates, Steve Kenny, Zacc Harris and Davu Seru to be premiered at the 2014 Twin Cities Jazz Festival.  We’re reaching out for your support to raise the final $3,000 to bring these new works to life.
