Kenneth Zagare has been directing the acclaimed vocal ensembles at Malverne High School for over a decade, focusing on technical prowess and inclusive, multicultural programming which has inspired audiences from neighborhood to festival stages. He also instructs a rigorous collegiate music theory course, and musically directs the school’s fully-staged musical each spring.

He is a member of the eVoco Voice Collective, the Minister of Music at Holy Cross Lutheran Church in Lake Ronkonkoma, and a freelance accompanist between Nassau and Suffolk counties.
