I have had the pleasure of working with Anthony Bisbano and he is a first rate orchestrator and arranger, who listens intently and delivers! He did the work on time, and truthfully. I only have good things to say about him. We communicated easily, his demeanor was totally professional, he was self-confident but not cocky, and his musical choices were outstanding. He is extremely versatile and everything I have asked him to do he has done in a very professional and very efficient manner. I certainly can recommend him without hesitation.

Among the recordings by Kate Smith, Eddie Fisher, Bobby Vinton, and The Living String, Anthony Bisbano's notable swing arrangement of my song Christmas Eve in My Home Town for songstress Addi McDaniel is at the top of the list.

I’ve been delighted to present a wide variety of Anthony's arrangements and original compositions over the years. Each night, after performing "The Prayer", the audience responded with a spontaneous standing ovation, right in the middle of the program. His arrangement was a ‘show-stopper’ in the most literal sense! His work is dynamic, imaginative and highly effective—a perfect fit for today’s pops audiences.

I have had the privilege of performing several of Anthony's arrangements. He arranges in a way that allows the voice and the music to compliment each other. It made my job much easier because his arrangements were intuitive to me as a singer, and everything fell into place. He made perfect musical choices. Anthony's orchestrations are so wonderfully done, and I have thoroughly enjoyed singing to them!

My work with Anthony Bisbano began with our collaboration with Marvin Hamlisch and the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra. The choral arrangements I did for Marvin were orchestrated beautifully and incredibly effective by Anthony. The orchestra loved them, the singers rejoiced and the audience was blown away.Robert PageFormer Director of Choral Activities, Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra,Former Director of Cleveland Orchestra Choruses
Anthony's arrangements are incredibly fun to hear and to conduct!

It is a pleasure to perform music of the extraordinary quality of Anthony Bisbano's work. Both the musicians of the Buffalo Philharmonic and I were impressed with his creativity, imagination and beautiful orchestration.

Anthony Bisbano is a first rate arranger. He has put together some really great charts for me that both orchestras and audiences have respond to in a big way, not to mention how much Jodi Benson enjoyed singing “All I want for Christmas is You” that he did for the two of us!

As a vocalist, Anthony's orchestrations provide a beautiful wave of music and voice to carry you through the tune. Combining instrumentals with vocals and a choir made my work with Anthony unforgettable.

Anthony was a joy to record with. His arrangement of "All I Want For Christmas Is You" stayed true to the original tune while mixing in a new contemporary flavor.
Anthony's arrangement of "Believe" was a superb representation of the original song with even more Symphonic splendor than the original and the addition of a chorus part that really made our Holiday Pops program soar, I highly recommend him!
I have had the pleasure of performing several arrangements by Anthony Bisbano. He is a gifted musician and his arrangements work very well for orchestra.

________________________________________________________The orchestra has performed arrangements of Anthony's at different sets of concerts very successfully. We appreciated having quality arrangements with clean and accurate parts available to us that we were able to put in place quickly in our short rehearsal time. We look forward to performing more of his arrangements in the future.
