Marking 40 years as a mainstay of the Twin Cities arts scene and the national new music scene, Zeitgeist will present a three-day 40th anniversary celebration May 4-6 at Studio Z.
One of the longest established new music groups in the country, Zeitgeist has maintained a fierce dedication to the music of our time for the past four decades. Since 1977, Zeitgeist has commissioned more than 400 works, collaborated with many of the finest composers of our time, and earned an international reputation for superb craftsmanship, virtuosic performance, and an innovative approach to the presentation of contemporary music. Zeitgeist celebrates its rich history and looks forward to the future of new music by revisiting works commissioned in each decade of their existence and launching the start of a new decade.
