Alexander Zonjic is an award-winning jazz flutist from Windsor, Ontario whose career spans four decades, playing with the biggest names in the music business.

Zonjic has performed at major classical and jazz festivals throughout North America including critically acclaimed appearances at Carnegie Hall, the Hollywood Bowl and New York’s Apollo Theater.

Whether the best is found in the words of classic composition, cutting edge jazz or original work, Zonjic perpetually transports enchanted listeners to that amazing scene through his playing. Zonjic creates music that is remembered for its originality, vital energy and sheer beauty. “It’s never the same ole same ole,” says Zonjic. “I’m always looking forward. I’m always optimistic.”
Here’s what Alexander recently said about his upcoming show at the Library:
“I’m looking forward to our December 12th Southfield performance. An amazing band with Chris Codish, Kris Kurzawa, James Simonson and Jeff Canady, an intimate setting and a whole lot of great music, can’t wait. . .”
