Spectri Sonori- Jazwinski

 SPECTRI SONORI a concert series and a chamber music ensemble specializing in performance of contemporary music, has been in residence at the Newcomb Music Department, Tulane University, since 1987. The series has presented the most recent compositions along with the established masterpieces of the recent past. The aim of SPECTRI SONORI is to introduce the New Orleans audience to the best works in the contemporary music literature and to encourage composers to create new works by offering an international composition competition and various special events in conjunction with the annual concert series. Among the grants the series has been awarded are grants from the French Government, Louisiana State Arts Council, Newcomb Foundation, Leonie D. Rothschild, Presser Foundation of Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, and a grant and a "Certificate of Excellence for Contribution to the Arts in the Greater New Orleans Community" from the David M. Metzner M.D. Foundation for the Arts.
