Jazz: The Second Century Series

2023 Series Shifts Focus to Present Young Artists

Earshot Jazz seeks submissions from young Seattle-area individual artists and ensembles for the Jazz: The Second Century series. This series brings the progression of jazz into creative motion and is a current and un-sentimental look at our city’s engagement with this diffuse, vibrant art form.

Applicants must be born this century (on or after 01/01/2000). Submissions must include a recorded work sample and a written statement between 350-400 words. Projects that question and expand the conventions of the jazz form are encouraged. 

Artists are selected through a blind listening jury process. These artists will perform live at the upcoming Earshot Jazz Festival and will be paid $150 per artist for ensembles between two to six people.

Seeking submissions now through July 31, 2023.
