About Enrico Galante
Enrico Galante was born and raised in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and now makes his home in Oakville, Ontario, Canada. Enrico has been performing since the age of 10 and is now a very sought after entertainer. His passion for the saxophone began at the young age of 5 while watching The Lawrence Welk Show on TV with his grandparents. There was an immediate connection between Enrico and the sweet mellow sounds of the saxophone section.
Enrico studied music throughout elementary school and high school. With numerous awards and outstanding achievements, Enrico furthered his music studies in college and university studying with the likes of the great Gino Silvi, Frank Uhran, Eddie Sossin, Pat LaBarbera, Dave Stillwell, Don Johnson, and Ron Collier. His musical influences were spread from Gato Barbieri, Michael Brecker, David Sanborn, Tom Scott, Dave Koz, Coleman Hawkins, Tower Of Power, and the legendary Earth, Wind & Fire.
Today Enrico Galante performs for audiences all over the country. He has performed live on CHIN International TV, and has actively organized The Heart and Stroke Fundraiser Gala in tribute to his beloved mother Rosaria Galante, who passed away in 2005. In memory of his mother, Enrico has released a CD with 10 of her favourite songs titled, “It’s Never Too Late For Sax”.
Enrico has worked with Juno Award winner Liberty Silver, world-lass Mediterranean guitarist Pavlo, and world-class vocalist Brian Roman. Enrico was one of the founding members of Canadian Recording Artists Gratitude, where he played tenor and alto saxophone for international recording artist Wess Johnson. Enrico was also part of the opening act, along with Aubrey Mann, for Cameo and The SOS Band at The O’Keefe Centre in Toronto.
Enrico has also dedicated the last 28 years of his life as a high school music director with the Toronto Catholic District School Board (TCDSB), giving young aspiring music students the opportunity to express themselves through instrumental and vocal music, developing the skills required to become our next generation of music creators.
Enrico Galante is very proud to be an artist endorser for Conn-Selmer, Inc., Henri Selmer Paris Saxophones, Theo Wanne Mouthpieces, AMT Microphones, Legere Reeds, and Silverstein Ligatures with Omni Cap.
