Jazz Winnipeg is pleased to announce the return of the Nu Sounds Series, running from January to May, 2019 at The Park Theatre.

We are inviting Manitoba jazz musicians to develop unique performance concepts for presentation in this series. Some considerations might be collaborations with musicians you don’t normally work with; unconventional material; improvised work; concept-based work. The idea is to invite you to explore material in an intimate concert-setting that you might not ordinarily have the opportunity to present. Preference is typically given to projects that focus on innovation and new ideas.

Interested musicians can submit their proposals here.
This project is contingent upon the availability of funding. Applications are due February 1, 2018.
