Center Stage Jazz

Our director, David J. Zoni, born to musician parents, began learning on brass instruments in elementary school. In middle and high schools, he played trombone, euphonium and trumpet in various ensembles. After graduation from Southington High School, he played in the UCONN marching band and jazz band.

Currently, David is a professional brass instrument technician, servicing the instruments of many Connecticut professionals, students and school systems.

On nights and weekends, David has a very active musical life. As well as directing the Center Stage Jazz Band, David plays euphonium in the band’s parent group, the Plainville Wind Ensemble. He also plays trombone as a freelance professional and a regular with the Red Satin band and is horn arranger and trombone player with R&B/dance band, New England’s Head Over Heels.
