1999 Friday Musicale Philanthropic Scholarship Recipient

A Florida boy at heart, Anthony Anurca comes from Jacksonville Beach, Fl.  His first instrument was the piano at the age of seven. Next was a brief stint at the violin at eight. Then came the dream to sing at age nine and finally, he saw his first bassoon at the age of 12. His hard work, dedication, and his love for music has paid off. He went to Douglas Anderson School of the Arts in Jacksonville for high school graduating in the Top 10 of his class in 1999. He then went to the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music to study with William Winstead where he received his B.M. and graduated cum laude in 2003. From 2004-2007, Anurca was a member of The New World Symphony America's Orchestra Academy of Miami Beach. He played with some of the best artists of our time including greats like Yo-Yo Ma, Thomas Hampson, and Michael Tilson Thomas. He had the opportunity to study with many of the worlds' top bassoonists including: David McGill, Richard Ranti, John Clouser, Michael Werba, Milan Turkovic, and contrabassoonists: Brad Buckley, and Steven Braunstein. During this time he also played in the summers at the Spoleto Music Festival and Aspen Music Festival where he studied with Nancy Goeres. In 2006, he was Alternate Finalist for the Fox-Gillet International Bassoon Competition.

He is the first ever Jacksonville Symphony Youth Orchestra alumnus to become a core orchestra member.
