Seth’s program consists of one musical work from different eras in music history. Alongside the concert, he will also give a small talk about how music has developed from one of the earliest eras to today as well as a guide on how to listen to classical music.
Zamora is a local pianist, growing up in Tularosa, NM. When he was 13 years old, Joseph took piano lessons from his grandmother Jonnie Haley. He studied at the El Paso Conservatory for a year with Esequiel Meza, and then at NMSU for his bachelor’s degree in piano performance with Dr. Laura Spitzer. Seth has won and placed very high in competitions throughout the New Mexico and Texas area and has performed several times with local orchestras.
The goal of Zamora’s 2019 summer tour is to educate the public on classical music. He intends to give a brief overview of classical music history and provide examples of the stylistic traits of each period through solo and chamber music. This series will also help those who aren’t familiar with classical music understand how to listen and appreciate it.
