Anthony Giamanco was born September 22, 1958 in Detroit, Michigan. He began musical studies at the age of 8, and a few years later, took his first forays into music composition. In 1968, his family moved to Taylor. With the advent of his professional career at the age of 17, Anthony was appointed organist/choir director at Community United Methodist Church in Romulus, and, almost simultaneously was hired by St. Alfred Catholic Parish as organist, with his dad as cantor. He has since served as music director at Methodist, Presbyterian, Lutheran and Catholic churches throughout the state of Michigan. Although he had brief keyboard training early on with Ronny Phillips (Aneiros), serious study of the piano was postponed until he entered college. At Eastern Michigan University he minored in piano under Dady Mehta. As an elective, he began formal training on the organ with Mary Ida Yost and later, Michelle Johns. Although composition was his first love, he decided to become a voice major, the study of which introduced him to the joys of German lieder, particularly the masterpieces of Schubert.
