Enjoy an evening of entertainment at the University of Central Missouri this week as UCM Music presents a saxophone concert by guest artist Athanasios Zervas at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 6 in the Hart Recital Hall.

A rare performer, composer, scholar, and conductor who is equally comfortable in the jazz and classical genres, Zervas has enjoyed an extensive international career that has included appearances in Carnegie Hall and ‘Megaron’ Concert Hall in Athens, Greece.

He also performed at the Opening and Closing ceremonies of the 2004 Olympics in Athens. Zervas will be accompanied at the piano by UCM faculty member Dr. Mia Kim.

Zervas has served as a member of a diverse set of ensembles including the Chicago Jazz Philharmonic, Chicago Symphonic Wind Ensemble, State Orchestra of HellenicUCM Music, Athens Symphony Orchestra (Greece), the National Symphony Orchestra of Greece, and the Athens Saxophone Quartet (which includes UCM School of Visual and Performing Arts Chair, Eric Honour).
