"Gerry Floriano is one of the country’s top university choral conductors and choral music educators…he possesses boundless enthusiasm and energy in both his quality teaching and passionate conducting…he is also one of those rare choral conductors who is also comfortable and effective with orchestral work."
— Donald Neuen, Professor of Music/Conducting UCLA
"Gerry Floriano is a consummate professional. From our first Barber of Seville rehearsal, he communicated his intentions clearly and consistently, yet he was also flexible and sensitive to my needs and suggestions. I had a great time working with Gerry and look forward to the next opportunity because he set high standards, led with gentle humor, and earned the respect of everyone."
— Daniel Weeks, Assistant Professor of Voice / University Scholar, University of Louisville School of Music
"It was clear to me during his visit (to Wheaton College) that Gerard Floriano might travel the world inspiring musicians and conducting ensembles, but he is grounded in his work in Western New York and is blessed with an educator's heart."
— Tony Payne, Director, Wheaton College Conservatory of Music
