(WARRENSBURG, Mo.) – A classical guitarist and scholar with St. Louis roots is coming to the University of Central Missouri.
The department of music and the Performing Arts Series at UCM are hosting classical guitarist Zane Forshee in concert at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, March 30, in Hart Recital Hall.
Active both as a soloist and chamber musician, Forshee was raised in St. Louis, where his exposure to various forms of music, both classical and popular, inspired his interest in developing diverse programs for the guitar, according to a news release.
His broad musical range and openness to collaboration has led him to work with an array of distinct artists, from Opus 1 Contemporary Dance Company to composers David Revill, Luke Bedford, Gene Koshinski, and Benjamin Verdery.
Forshee received Doctor of Musical Arts and Master of Music degrees and a Graduate Performance diploma from the Peabody Conservatory of Music of the Johns Hopkins University, where he serves as the chair of the Department of Guitar and Harp. He also serves on the faculty of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, and is in residence at the Performing Arts Institute Summer Music Festival in Pennsylvania.
Forshee’s three-day residency at UCM includes masterclasses and seminars, culminating in the March 30 concert.
Tickets will be available starting Monday, March 27, from 9 a.m. to noon at the Central Tickets Box Office, Administration 100, and one hour prior to show time at the venue, or by calling 660-543-8888. Tickets and information are available anytime online at ucmpas.com.
Forshee’s residency is made possible in part by a grant from the Missouri Arts Council, a state agency.
