As an orchestrator, Anthony enjoys helping fellow composers and songwriters develop and transfer their music to an orchestral or other performance medium.

Anthony performs frequently in the jazz and cabaret setting. As a collaborative artist, he is inspired by the opportunity to realize and interpret the storytelling possibilities that are present in the music he is performing and listening to. His mission as a musician is keen to understanding and translating the sonic and dramatic environment of a piece where the melody, harmony and rhythm coincide.
