Mario Gullo’s music has been performed by the New York City Master Chorale, the Larchmont Avenue Church Chancel Choir, Bridges Vocal Ensemble, the Cantine Quartet, the OLL Players, Infinitus, and C4: the Choral Composer/Conductor Collective. 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’s bright, smart music balances modern savvy and timeless optimism. He is a skilled, sophisticated composer: he can evoke styles and traditions – narratives, dialogues, duets; jazzy cool, show-tune glamor – with easy economy.” Mario has studied with Robert Roxby, the composers of C4: the Choral Composer/Conductor Collective and Wang Jie.
As a performer, Mario has performed at David Geffen Hall, Alice Tully Hall, City Center, Theatre 80, the 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, Bowling Green State University, and Brooklyn College Conservatory of Music. MarioGullo.net
