Source Song presents: songSLAM Minneapolis
January 10, 2019 @ 8:00 pm$20 - $25
The Sparks & Wiry Cries Minneapolis songSLAM is a unique competition for emerging composer/performer teams to premiere new art song, in partnership with Source Song Festival. Teams will present a new song of no more than 5 minutes for voice and piano in any language for the voting audience, who—in the poetry slam tradition—will then vote on their favorites and award $900 in prize money. Teams are encouraged to bring their friends, as all prizes will be awarded by audience vote!
We’re thrilled to have Chris Koza as our host for the evening. Koza has headlined the legendary First Avenue Mainroom. But he’s rocked all of Minneapolis’ famous venues—including the Varsity Theatre, The Fitzgerald, the Fine Line, the Cedar Cultural Center. Although he has six solo albums and a film score under his belt, Koza does plenty of writing and performing with Rogue Valley. A Minnesota State Arts Board Arts on Tour recipient, Koza regularly plays and guest lectures at the Institute of Production and Recording (IPR) in Minneapolis.
