Nicolas Carter playing Paraguayan harp

416 Club Commissions is an annual program of The Cedar, working in conjunction with The Jerome Foundation, that commissions seven emerging, Minnesota-based artists to create new work that is debuted in a public concert series at The Cedar. The 2014 recipients were chosen by a panel of Twin Cities music industry professionals including record label owners, music educators, local musicians, and Cedar staff. Each of the seven artists will present their work on Monday evenings beginning January 13th and running through to the end of February.

Raised in Paraguay, Nicolas Carter learned to play the national folk instrument, the Paraguayan harp. He wishes to compose a collection of pieces titled "Free the Zoo Animals" inspired by his recent stay in Montevideo, Uruguay. Accompanied by five other musicians, Carter will create unique sounds by blending Latin American rhythms with acoustic string instruments (including jarana and charango), and Andean woodwinds, and various percussive elements.
