"Tony Manfredonia is an award-winning composer and orchestrator living in Petoskey, MI, providing a multi-layered and sensory experience through expressive, colorful orchestration and warm melodies. With performances and readings from chamber ensembles, such as Apollo Chamber Players, to large-scale ensembles, like the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, Tony’s music has been played across the nation. Additionally, growing up alongside video games, he lives the life of a video game composer, creating sonic spaces and story-driven tracks to enliven each game's world. Born and raised near Philadelphia, PA, he graduated from Temple University with a degree in Music Composition. During his time in college, he had the blessing of meeting Maria - a young equestrian from Northern Michigan - via his blog dedicated to recovering from anorexia nervosa. Two and a half years later, his dream of living in a non-city setting was fulfilled as he and Maria married in July of 2016. Ever since mental health awareness connected he and his wife, Tony continually advocates those who suffer from mental illness. Through music, he expresses the inexpressible for those who don’t have a voice."
