Call for Artists
Deadline June 1

Earshot Jazz seeks submissions from Seattle-area individual artists and ensembles for the 2015 Jazz: The Second Century series. The series brings the progression of jazz into creative motion on the concert stage. Projects that question and expand the conventions of the jazz form are welcome.

Seattle-area individual artists or groups, in any instrument combination, are eligible. Submissions must include a recorded sample of a project that can be performed in a concert setting. We encourage applicants to include a letter that speaks to their musical interpretation of the meaning of jazz and of the next stage of jazz music.

Individual artists or ensembles are selected by a blind-jury process. Second Century artists and ensembles perform during July 2015, and are paid a competitive fee for the performance.

Deadline to apply is June 1.

For questions or more information, call the Earshot office at 206-547-6763.

A list of past Jazz: The Second Century artists and ensembles can be viewed at Second Century Series archive.

2015 Performances Scheduled for Thursdays in July (9, 23, & 30).
