Anthony Cosio-Marron is a Boston Philharmonic Crescendo Music Education teaching fellow and trombonist. He began playing trombone as an elementary schooler in Maryland where he grew up. He received his Bachelor’s degree in trombone performance from the Cleveland Institute of Music and his Master’s from the University of Michigan. He is currently a doctoral student at Boston University and a freelance trombonist in the Boston area. Though his training is mostly classical, he has had the good fortune to have experience in jazz, musical theater, and pop styles. As a trombonist, he has appeared with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Rhode Island Philharmonic, and Qatar Philharmonic, as well as in the pit at the North Shore Music Theater. In his spare time, he enjoys cooking, sketching, and spending time with his wife and newborn daughter.
In the context of your Crescendo Music Education teaching and/or performing, what does the BPO’s vision of “passionate music making without boundaries” mean to you?
To me, passionate music making without boundaries means showing up and helping young students who want to learn about music: meeting them wherever they may be, helping them to see the joy that music can bring, and encouraging them every step along the way. Passionate music making with Crescendo Music Education means inspiring students to play passionately, have confidence, and especially have fun.
