Ryan Anthony, born in 1970, is most notable for his performances as a member of Canadian Brass and soloist. He won the General Motors/Seventeen magazine concerto competition at the age of 16. At age seventeen, he caught the attention of Canadian Brass players in a local workshop. After his education at the Cleveland Institute of Music, he was awarded the trumpet professorship at Oberlin Conservatory, where he stayed until 2000. Today, he still performs with them occasionally with the Canadian Brass and is currently the Acting Principal Trumpet for the Dallas Symphony Orchestra.

Notes on the music

A beautiful album of spiritual music performed by trumpet and organ includes Simple Gifts, The Reason, Morning Has Broken, Amazing Grace, In the Garden, How Great Thou Art and 18 more. Pianist Gary Beard and trumpeter Ryan Anthony began playing together in 1993, following Ryan's move to Memphis as a member of the Memphis Symphony Orchestra. They met at the Lindenwood Church where Gary was Artist in Residence and Ryan was engaged for a concert. Thus began a long friendship but also a special musical collaboration, playing concerts in the area together and performing in church services. Response to their music was enthusiastic and there were soon requests for concert bookings and recordings. Their arrangements of hymns were collected together and released on Hymns Impromptu.
