Boshnack has been selected as the 2018 Make Jazz Fellow. The Seventh Annual Make Jazz Fellowship is sponsored by the Herb Alpert Foundation to honor and support promising, emerging Jazz composers. 18th Street Arts Center will provide her with a three-month fully funded residency in Los Angeles, starting February 2018. While there, she will compose and rehearse “Seismic Belt” with a band of LA musicians she assembles. At the end of the residency, she will premiere the work at a large concert in an LA venue presented by 18th Street Arts Center.
Prior recipients of the Make Jazz Fellowship are Matana Roberts, Tomeka Reid, John Ellis, Marquis Hill, Teddy Raven, and Giorgi Mikadze. For more about 18th Street Arts Center, go to www.18thstreet.org
