ANTHONY GARZA

Anthony Burkes Garza, bass, is a native of the Houston, TX area, and has been a proud Boston resident for more more than a decade. He graduated in 2010 from New England Conservatory with degrees in Vocal Performance and Music History, since that time building a career that encompasses choral, oratorio, and occasionally operatic work. Primarily a chamber musician, he lends his low notes to numerous ensembles in the Boston area, including Cappella Clausura (for whom he also serves as Chorus Manager), Labyrinth Choir, and Renaissance Men (for whom he serves as a founding member and General Manager). He can also be found singing for 30+ religious institutions, including Newton‘s Temple Shalom and Boston‘s Church of the Advent and Emmanuel Music. Favorite operatic roles performed include Pangloss in Bernstein‘s Candide (Lowell House Opera), Donna Agata in Donizetti‘s Viva la Mamma (New England Conservatory), and Agamemnon in Elena Ruehr‘s Cassandra in the Temple (Cappella Clausura). Outside of music, Anthony manages a high end hair salon by day and enjoys exploring his East Boston neighborhood, going to CrossFit, and leaping into handstands at the slightest provocation.
