Nicholas Amodio has been studying music at our school for the past 5 years under direction of composer/pianist Andy Iorio. Originally learning contemporary artists music, Nicholas naturally gravitated his studies towards original composition. He will be giving his senior recital this Sunday, August 7, 2016 at 6:30pm at the school. It is free and you are invited to attend. He will also be releasing his first album “Pathways” which he has been working on closely with his teacher Mr. Andy Iorio for the last year. CD’s are a limited edition run of 100 for this show only, and available for purchase after the concert.
