As a performer, Zokaites has all the skill necessary...variety of color, precision, lyricism, and a musical presence.

Making Music Relatable
Music is for the populace. I aim to increase appreciation for classical music through education and performance. By creating a community surrounding musical pursuits, we can make music for everyone.
As an intellectual and an artist, I aim to popularize accessible music for the trombone. Musicians have the ability to speak to a broad audience and have the ability to provide social commentary, entertainment, and intellectual pursuit, even for the uninitiated.
Collaboration creates energy and excitement. The process in which we create breathes life into each project. This enthusiasm is contagious and encourages curiosity in audience members. We create for them.
