Zani Lewis is a freshman at Burlington High School and is in his third year of intensive music studies at Mannes Prep in NYC on Saturdays. He has been playing the cello for more than eleven years and has been part of the Vermont Youth Orchestra Association for nine. Zani is part of a regular chamber group and, in addition, plays with an advanced performance string ensemble at the Upper Valley Music Center.
During the summers when he’s not away at music camp, he can be found busking on Church Street. Zani’s been fortunate to have amazing teachers and wonderful support from classical music enthusiasts. He loves everything having to do with music, especially performing, and enjoys composing in his spare time.
