ZEITGEIST, a musical ensemble based in St. Paul, Minnesota, received a two-year grant of $30,000 in support of an emerging composers commissioning program, which includes the Spring Training Project. Zeitgeist presents the best of contemporary music reflecting the spirit of the 20th Century, and is particularly committed to performing the music of live composers. Jerome Foundation has supported commissioning programs at Zeitgeist since 1980. Dissatisfied with the traditional form of the chamber music concert, Zeitgeist has moved to a concert format that features one evening-length work or two works of half-concert length, with the goal of developing and sustaining dramatic energy throughout the concert. Zeitgeist anticipates that the number of commissions it offers to emerging composers per year will be reduced in number, but that the opportunity for creating longer and more substantial work will provide a new type of creative challenge to composers.
