Praised as a “breezily virtuosic flutist” by the New York Times after his concerto debut with the Orchestra of Saint Luke’s and Teddy Abrahms in May 2019, flutist Anthony Trionfo is “a musician of prodigious talent and scintillating personality” (Oberon’s Grove).
Anthony (Toney) Trionfo has performed as a soloist with the Edmonton Symphony, ProMusica Chamber Orchestra, the “President’s Own” Marine Band, McCall Festival Orchestra, and Stockton Symphony among others. Recently, he has given recitals at the Morgan Library and Museum in New York, Festival de Ibagué in Colombia, Colgate University, and the Brownville Concert Series. He also frequently appears with the Jupiter Chamber Players in New York City. This season, Anthony makes his concerto debuts with the Grant Park Festival Orchestra, Riverside Symphony, and Gulf Coast Symphony Orchestra in addition to providing educational residencies for the Juilliard School, Artists Series Concerts of Sarasota, Ithaca College, Clarion Concerts, and Abbey Church Events.
Anthony won First Prize at the 2016 Young Concert Artists International Auditions. In 2018, he debuted in the YCA Series at New York’s Merkin Concert Hall and Washington DC’s Kennedy Center along with pianist Albert Cano Smit, premiering a new work by YCA Composer-in-Residence Katherine Balch.
