One of the most celebrated young musicians in the world today, Geoff Gallante has performed on prominent stages and alongside distinguished artists all across the country, starting when he was only four years old. Now, Gallante is 14 and will be performing at Rutherfurd Hall in Allamuchy Township on Sunday, Dec. 27. Showtime is 3 p.m.
In the jazz realm, Gallante is comfortable playing all styles, from traditional New Orleans style to small group straight-ahead jazz to classic big band and swing. As a ‘traditional’ jazz player he’s a member of the D.C. based award-winning Capitol Focus Jazz Band and as a big band trumpeter he plays in the Blues Alley Youth Jazz Orchestra. Gallante has performed in 34 states nationwide– including five different ensembles of the U.S. Military!
He’s the youngest instrumentalist, at six years old, to ever perform at the White House or at the prestigious Kennedy Center in D.C. Gallante’s network TV appearances include The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, NBC’s Today Show & the CBS Early Show.
