Nicholas Zork is a singer-songwriter, composer, arranger, music director and collaborative artist. His songs, academic writing and music practices explore ways that music can resonate, embody meaning, cultivate diverse and inclusive community, and overcome social barriers.
He is the musical director for TINTR (thisisnottheradio.com/tintr), a diverse artists’ community in New York City, with whom he has helped create collaborative concerts at Joe’s Pub at the Public Theater, Apollo Music Cafe and other venues. He is the artistic director and co-curator for Carnegie Hill Concerts, a chamber music series that features artists of different genres and disciplines in curated, shared programs, bringing people together to participate in the celebration and cultivation of New York City’s diverse community (carnegiehillconcerts.org). And he is a founding partner of SongLab (wearesonglab.com), an online music education community.
Nicholas’ classical compositions have been performed by university and festival choirs, and his music has appeared in numerous television programs.
In addition to writing and recording with other artists, Nicholas also performs his own folk-oriented pop songs. His music has taken him around the United States, Europe and to Australia. Nicholas’ EPs, “Questions I Can’t Answer,” “All We Own,” and “Promises I Can’t Keep” explore questions of love, loss, doubt and hope through stories — both autobiographical and imagined.
