The senior recital format for a Church Music major is bipartate: first, a half hour of performance on the major instrument (for Zach, piano); and second, a half hour of conducting, usually with full band arrangements of selected pieces. Zach went above and beyond the call of duty by composing or arranging all but one of his choir pieces, and even wrote one of his classical piano pieces (Moving Theme for a Melodic Instrument). Zach has copy-pasted his program notes into the details about each song. Enjoy!
PS - although there are at least a hundred mistakes in the piano section, Zach wanted us to remind you that before he began studying piano at NCU he pretty much couldn't read piano music!
