“Music has been such an integral part of my life that I feel compelled to do everything I can to encourage children to take an interest in learning to play an instrument,” Zuccaro said. “Our school systems have to focus on important subjects like Math and English, but I would like to bring an awareness that Math and English are extremely prevalent in music theory and composition, throughout every musical style. There is a direct mathematical correlation between all the musical notes, as well as vocabulary skills, creative writing, and freedom of expression that is achieved through learning, performing and writing music.”
For those that don't know, Zucarro began his lifelong career in music at the age of nine and has recorded and performed professionally with accomplished musicians throughout New York, Los Angeles and Las Vegas. Zuccaro has played at The Stanley Theatre in the past, both as a headliner and as an opening act, notably for Michael McDonald and Melissa Manchester. Zuccaro has written over 150 songs and has released his musical portfolio aptly titled “Songs of a Lifetime.”
This will be one show you won't want to miss coming up on Friday November 4th at 7PM.
