Playing it Close to Home

September 10, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm CDT

With winning songs from the 2021 Eric Stokes Song Contest plus music by local composer Michelle Kinney (a past ACF board member, a McKnight fellow, a JCCP recipient (now called ACF Create), and a past Live Music for Dance winner), Zeitgeist’s Playing it Close to Home concert celebrates the wealth of musical creativity found right here in our own backyard. The program includes music by Eric Stokes Song Contest winners Ilan Blanck, Julie Sweet, and Ellie Gold, plus the world premiere of new music composed for Zeitgeist by Michelle Kinney.

The Eric Stokes Song Contest is sponsored by Zeitgeist in memory of late composer Eric Stokes; the contest was designed to encourage and celebrate amateur composers throughout the Twin Cities. Playing it Close to Home will feature winning songs by Ilan Blanck and Julie Sweet in the adult category, and Ellie Gold in the youth category.
