Damon Zick (Music MFA 03) says, “My world chamber jazz ensemble Quarteto Nuevo was awarded a Jazz Road Tours Grant from South Arts to support our spring tour to Utah, Colorado, and Wyoming. Jazz Road is an artist-centric touring and residency grants program to spread jazz throughout the country, strengthen work opportunities and compensation for jazz artists, and bolster deeper engagement between jazz musicians, presenters, and communities. US-based jazz artists who define themselves as emerging to more established are eligible for support. The program is intended to support jazz artists for which this grant would have a new and significant career impact.”
