The Lee University School of Music will present a faculty recital featuring its very own Dr. Nathan Warner on Wednesday, Feb. 7, at 7:30 p.m. The performance will take place at the Dixon Center on Lee’s campus. 

The recital will feature works from Hanns Eisler, Peter Gabriel, Bruce Hornsby, The Police, Toru Takemitsu, and Stevie Wonder. 

Performing alongside many Lee University School of Music faculty and students, Dr. Warner will be joined by an ensemble which includes a chamber string orchestra, brass, and a rhythm section. 

Dr. Warner joined Lee’s faculty in 2014 as an assistant professor of music, and he previously served on the faculties of the Manhattan School of Music Pre College and the City College of New York. 

He performs regularly as a classical, orchestral, commercial, big band, and jazz artist in New York City, where he lived for 15 years. He has performed with artists such as Clay Aiken, Olivia Newton-John, and The Temptations, among others. Warner has also performed on several Broadway shows, including “Aladdin,” “Spider-Man,” and “Gypsy.” 

Dr. Warner’s teaching extends to his work with Midori and Friends Foundation, a foundation that provides music education programs to children in New York City who have little or no access to the arts. He has also worked for the New York Pops Orchestra Outreach Program and the Hartwick College Summer Music Festival and Institute. 

Dr. Warner earned his Doctor of Musical Arts in trumpet performance from Stony Brook University, his Master of Music in classical trumpet performance at the Manhattan School of Music, and his bachelor’s degree in jazz studies from Indiana University School of Music.
