Zohn Collective is a contemporary music collective, which seeks to produce and perform artist-driven projects generated by its members. For this reason, the diversity of backgrounds, interests, and expertise of each member is an essential and vibrant element of the group’s model. The ensemble core is comprised of nine members, which includes instrumental performers, composers, and a conductor. However, the group may expand or contract as dictated by the repertory of each project.
Founded in 2017, Zohn Collective has already recorded its first CD under the Oberlin Music label, which is expected for release in summer of 2018, and is booked for various upcoming engagements, including collaborative performances with the internationally recognized puppet company, La Coperacha, at the Festival de Mayo in Guadalajara, Mexico. Other upcoming events include performances, workshops, and recording projects held at the University at Lexington, Belmont University, Oberlin Conservatory, and Notre Dame. The collective has been awarded grants from USArtists International and from the Paul R. Judy Center for Innovation and Research.
