The creative output of Anthony R. Green (composer, performer, social justice artist) includes musical and visual creations, interpretations of original works or works in the repertoire, collaborations, educational outreach, and more. Behind all of his artistic endeavors are the ideals of equality and freedom, which manifest themselves in diverse ways in a composition, a performance, a collaboration, or social justice work. His main composition teachers have been Theodore Antoniou, Lee Hyla, and Robert Cogan, and he has participated in masterclasses with Laura Schwendinger, Paquito D’Rivera, and the JACK Quartet.
Through music and entrepreneurship, Green comments on many issues related to social justice, including immigration (Earned – narrator & double string quartet), civil rights (Dona Nobis Veritatem – soprano, viola, & piano), the historical links between slavery and current racial injustice in the US (Oh, Freedom! – spoken word, voice, flute, viola, cello; Almost Over – sax quartet), the contributions of targeted and/or minority groups to humanity (A Single Voice: Solitary, Unified – solo alto sax & fixed media), and more.
