PROJECT : ENCORE  

The music of Mario Gullo has been performed and commissioned by the New York City Master Chorale, the Larchmont Avenue Church Chancel Choir, Bridges Vocal Ensemble, the Canite Quartet, and C4. It has been called “shiny and exuberant,” “a quick-step dance rhythm and a modern sense of fun,” and “balances choral counterpoint and harmonies extraordinarily well.”

Gullo has performed in and around New York City at Alice Tully Hall, City Center, Theatre 80, Barrow Street Theater, La MaMa, the Slipper Room, Pianos and Arlene’s Grocery. By far, his favorite was appearing with Barbara Cook at Carnegie Hall. Regionally, he has performed at Artpark, the Theater of Youth, Tri-State Center for the Performing Arts, the Depot Theater and with the Hudson Valley Philharmonic. He is a graduate of the State University of New York at Fredonia and Bowling Green State University.
