Anthony Trionfo, flute
Praised for his “spellbinding” performances with “authoritative intellect” by the Santa Barbara Voice after his performance of the Jolivet Concerto with the Music Academy of the West Festival Orchestra, flutist Anthony Trionfo will make his recital debuts this spring on the Young Concert Artists Series at the Kennedy Center as well as in New York City’s Merkin Concert Hall, premiering a new work by YCA Composer-in-Residence Katherine Balch.
In the 2017-2018 season he appears in recital and conducts educational and community outreach at Chamber on the Mountain, Iowa State University, Southern Adventist University, Saint Vincent College, the Levine School of Music, the Lied Center of Kansas and the Port Washington Library. He performs Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 5 with Vadim Gluzman and the ProMusica Chamber Orchestra, and appears with Jupiter Chamber Players. He has performed concertos with the Interlochen Symphony Orchestra, the Colburn Symphony Orchestra, Mr. Obama’s “President’s Own” Marine Band, and the Las Vegas Philharmonic.
Recipient of the Jack Kent Cooke Young Artist Award in 2012, Mr. Trionfo appeared on From the Top as a Featured Alumni Performer. In 2013, Anthony was a first prize winner of the Alexander & Buono International Flute Competition and a winner of the National Young Arts Foundation Competition.
At the Young Concert Artists 2016 International Auditions, Anthony received additional prizes, including the Saint Vincent College Concert Series Prize, the Ruth Laredo Award, the Lied Center of Kansas Prize, and the Michaels Award. He received the further distinction of being the first YCA artist to win the inaugural LP Classics Debut Recording Prize, granting him a commercial recording.
In addition to performing, Mr. Trionfo is committed to community outreach, teaching through the Jumpstart program in LA.
Mr. Trionfo is pursuing his master’s degree under the tutelage of James Walker at the Colburn Conservatory of Music, where he has been a Teaching Fellow. He graduated from the Interlochen Arts Academy, having studied with Nancy Stagnitta. He has performed in masterclasses with Emmanuel Pahud, Mimi Stillman and Paula Robison.
