Biography

Anthony R. Green (b. 24 July 1984, Arlington, Va.) is an American composer, performer, and social justice artist.

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.

The creative output of Anthony R. Green 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.

As a composer, his works have been presented in over 20 countries by Gabriela Díaz (violin), Wendy Richman (viola), and Alarm Will Sound, to name a few. He has received commissions from Community Music Works, Make Music Boston, Celebrity Series Boston, the Robert McCormick Percussion Group, and various soloists and ensembles. He has been a resident artist at the Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts (Nebraska), Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, Escape to Create (Florida), Visby International Centre for Composers (Sweden), Space/Time (Scotland), atelier:performance (Germany), and the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts (Nebraska). As a performer, he has worked with student and emerging composers, as well as established composers such as David Liptak, Renée C. Baker, Steve Reich, and George Crumb.

Through music and entrepreneurship, Green comments on many issues related to social justice, including immigration, civil rights, the historical links between slavery and current racial injustice in the U.S., the contributions of targeted and/or minority groups to humanity, and more. Green’s most important social justice work has been with Castle of our Skins, a concert and education series organization dedicated to celebrating Black artistry through music.

His solo and collaborative work has been recognized by grants from Meet the Composer, the Argosy Foundation, New Music USA, and the American Composers Forum as a McKnight Visiting Composer.
