KMBZ Person of the Week

St. Joseph, MO - Our person of the week is a high school student in St. Joseph Missouri.  And he's a phenomenal percussion player.

He's so good he got into four out of five of the conservatories he applied to:  the New England Conservatory; the Eastman School of Music; the UMKC Conservatory; and the Cleveland Insitute of Music. He was invited to audition for Juilliard. 

Juilliard is quite difficult to get into with an acceptance rate around 6 percent. 

Unlike other musicians who excel at maybe one instrument, Zach being a percussionist... he has to play them all.

So now, Zach and his parents have to determine which school to attend, the one that will launch his musical career.
