The mind has a tendency to wander – the artist just knows to follow where it leads. Whether struggling with personal issues, searching for one's place in life, reflecting on loved ones or simply observing life as it passes by the nearest window, one’s muse can take many forms, all capable of leading to inspiration. For his new recording, Musings, composer/arranger Christopher Zuar incorporates a variety of emotional and musical sources to create a program of highly original, self-reflective and expressive compositions performed by an extraordinary ensemble.  The recording will be released April 1, 2016 – Zuar’s 29th birthday.
