Described as “beautiful, lyrical” and brimming with “unexpected harmonic shifts” (International Trumpet Guild), the music of Dr. Zach Gulaboff Davis centers on the core elements that define music: Emotion, drama, and beauty.

His works have been performed venues including Carnegie Hall, Columbia University, Bulgaria’s National Palace of Culture, Norway’s Arctic Cathedral, the International Trumpet Guild’s National Conference, NYU Steinhardt and Shanghai, and at schools of music and conservatories throughout the country. Zach holds a B.A. in piano performance and composition/theory, summa cum laude, from Linfield College, Oregon, and a M.M. in composition from Mannes College of Music in New York City.
