Born and raised in West Kelowna, Zach Griffin has started to make a name for himself as an up and coming saxophone player, composer, and arranger in the Canadian jazz scene. Zach is currently in his fourth year in the Jazz Performance program at the University of Toronto where he plays lead alto in the University of Toronto Jazz Orchestra. Since moving to Toronto, he has had the opportunity to study with Canadian jazz legends and Juno award winners such as Mike Murley, Terry Promane, Kelly Jefferson and Dave Young. In addition to all of the performances through UofT, Zach performs often as a sideman and band leader in the GTA and occasionally in the Okanagan Valley.
