“Gerry’s artistic creativity is only surpassed by his passion for music. His creativity drew me in – his passion drove me forward. He is an artist one hopes to work with again, and again, and again".

"Under the direction of Dr. Floriano, the Greater Buffalo Youth Orchestra has flourished and has achieved the reputation as one of the country's premier youth orchestras. As President of the Board of Directors, I appreciate Dr. Floriano's professionalism, both on and off the podium. He has become a mentor to many of our studnets in both of these capacities as well. He has truly been a wonderful leader for our youth orchestra!"
— Eileen Yu, Greater Buffalo Youth Orchestra
