After living and traveling in Jordan, Israel and elsewhere in the Middle East, Zack Manning moved to Chicago to get a graduate degree in Middle East studies, but that didn’t hinder him from pursuing his other passion: music. Working with his teacher Dr. Fred Bugbee and the NMSU Music Department, Manning arranged to work toward a graduate music degree as well, and tonight, he’ll perform his Master’s recital at the Atkinson Recital Hall. He came to KRWG to talk with Intermezzo host Leora Zeitlin about the decidedly international program of music, which includes works from Pakistan, Argentina, Mexico, Eastern Europe and more.
