Anthony Zediker, a native of Nashville, received a BA in piano performance from DePaul University (2013) in Chicago. Studying with celebrated artists such as Aglika Angelova from the Jupiter Trio, Jelena Dirks from the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Ron Perillo, a resident pianist in all of Chicago's finest jazz clubs, and hailed Georgian concert pianist George Vatchnadze, Zediker evolved into a versatile and exciting performer keenly interested in experimental music. Selected project highlights include: pianist for Schoenberg’s melodrama Pierrot Lunaire, pianist for an all-Georg Friederich Haas concert at DePaul performing Le Profondeur in complete darkness, pianist for a centennial celebration of Stravinsky performing Deux Poems and Three Japanese Lyrics, keyboardist for the Ruth Page Center’s production of Fame: the Musical, and pianist for the world premiere of Seven Wallace’s new opera inspired by the 1987 film The Princess Bride. Last spring, he emerged as a collaborator and live conceptual art subject with photographer and professor Jason Lazarus where he practiced publicly in the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago for twelve weeks. Zediker now resides in Los Angeles where he bids his time as a performer, composer/arranger, choral director, and piano instructor.
