Patricia-Orlando-guitar“Tony Pirollo was an invaluable force in making our “Symphony in Bossa” project a reality. He not only advocated and helped fundraise, but assembled, rehearsed, and conducted the best string players from Philly and New York, who made our record and live concert sound like a million bucks. We’re grateful and forever indebted to Tony. It was such a pleasure working with him. We look forward to working together again soon.”
