Zachary Grim, Classical Guitar

November 15, 2019 @ 8:00 pm

Preservation New Jersey is pleased to welcome classical guitarist Zachary Grim to his first performance at the 1867 Sanctuary.

My Favorite Things is the newest concert program from American guitarist, Zachary Grim. About this experience that fuses the sounds of Spain, South American tango, and American jazz under the umbrella classical guitar, Zachary says the following, “I feel that a good concert is one that tells the audience who you are through your music. One of the greatest things about the world is that we are all amalgams of the diverse cultures and perspectives that shape who we are. I believe that this program, more than almost any other I have done, shows this successfully. The sheer variety of emotions, stories, and beauty that I am able to experience with the audience during these concerts is awe inspiring. It’s a truly special program that I am thrilled to share!”.

Guitarist Zachary Grim (www.zacharygrim.com) is known for his contemporary concert programs presented in both modern and traditional contexts across the country. His music has led him to performances in venues such as the Newman Center for the Performing Arts, Walters Art Museum, Gore Recital Hall, Hamilton Recital Hall, Gates Recital Hall, Waldheim Park, and Ag Hall. Additionally, Zachary has appeared as an artist for organizations such as the Society of the Cincinnati, Bethlehem Bach Choir, Pennsylvania Sinfonia Orchestra, Allentown Band, Wilmington Classical Guitar Society, Boulder Guitar Society, and Denver Guitar Workshop. While Zachary frequently brings his music to the concert hall, he frequently seeks out alternative venues for performance. Zachary has performed concerts in living rooms, music therapy centers, retirement homes, and bars to spread the guitar’s vast repertoire to all corners of society.

An active teacher, Zachary has held a number of prestigious teaching appointments and has maintained a studio of private students since 2009. Currently, Mr. Grim holds teaching appointments at the Community College of Baltimore County, Baltimore School for the Arts, Baltimore School of Music, as well as a teaching assistantship at the Peabody Conservatory. Previously, he held a teaching appointment at the University of Denver.

As an academic, Zachary also gives lectures on a number of topics relating to the classical guitar and its repertoire. Previous topics have included transcribing the lute music of John Dowland, the lute music of the English Tudor courts, Baroque performance practice, and modern compositional styles among guitar composers.

Zachary received two BM degrees in Music Performance and Music Education from West Chester University (Magna Cum Laude), a MM in Music Performance from the University of Denver where he received the Outstanding Recital Award. Currently, Zachary is currently pursuing his Doctor of Musical Arts degree in Performance with a congruent Master of Music degree in Musicology at the Peabody Conservatory of the Johns Hopkins University.

When he is not performing or teaching, Zachary is an avid Philadelphia sports fan. A former baseball player, one of his favorite past-times is watching the Philadelphia Phillies and frequently visiting the different stadiums in America. Today, Zachary is a fitness enthusiast who enjoys learning more about exercise and nutrition while training for various physical projects.
