Anthony Trionfo, flute and piccolo

The Colburn School

How did you choose your instrument?

I chose to play the flute in 6th grade band. I had previously studied the recorder and when I found out the fingering system was very similar to that of the flute, I thought playing the flute would be the easiest.

What piece are you most excited to play this coming season?

I am most excited to play Saint-Saëns Organ Symphony! It is an absolutely incredible work of epic proportions.

What have you learned from AYS so far and what are you hoping to gain from AYS in the future?

The playing experience in AYS is extremely valuable because it gives you a glimpse into the life of a professional orchestral musician. Everyone is responsible for practicing their parts individually, and we move through repertoire at a fast pace.
