the recipient of a scholarship from the French Ministry
of Culture, he pursued extensive post-graduate study in
France with Daniel Deffayet, professor of saxophone at
the Paris National Conservatory.
Zimmerman is a founding member of the World Saxophone
Congress and the North American Saxophone Alliance.
He has frequently performed for regional, national, and
international meetings of those bodies. He has appeared

solos: Larson Lunde's Sonata II, and Zimmerman's
own unaccompanied solo, Reflection.
