Zeitgeist New Music Group


10,000 Fresh Voices | KFAI

Since 1977, Zeitgeist has been creating and performing new music by living composers, and has been commissioned for more than 150 new works. Operating out of Studio Z in downtown St. Paul, the quartet includes Heather Barringer, percussionist and artistic co-director; Pat O'Keefe, woodwind player and artistic co-director; Patti Cudd, percussionist; and Shannon Wettstein, pianist. The group tours outside Minnesota and collaborates with artists of all types and genres to create new work that challenges the boundaries of traditional chamber music. This story was produced for KFAI by Dixie Treichel.
