International twin brother tenors Will & Anthony Nunziata are two of the most sought after young entertainers. Will & Anthony have performed over 400 concerts over the past five years headlining major performing arts centers, theaters and symphony concert halls across the country and around the world. The renowned singers, songwriters, Netflix-bound comedians and Carnegie Hall Headliners are the Brooklyn- born, classically trained singing and comedy brother duo hailed by The Huffington Post as “a nearly impossible pairing of talent, stage presence and charisma.” They recently headlined Carnegie Hall for two sold-out concerts with the New York Pops Symphony Orchestra.
The brothers have brought their distinct take on classic & contemporary songs as well as their movie-bound original tunes to performing arts centers and theaters, as well as intimate jazz clubs and symphony concerts with orchestras such as the New York Pops, Detroit Symphony, Cleveland Pops, Colorado Symphony, Lancaster Symphony, Annapolis Symphony, Cape Cod Symphony, Toledo Symphony, and Edmonton Symphony Orchestra. The brothers studied music, acting and directing at Boston College, and trained in improv comedy at the famed Upright Citizens Brigade in New York City.
The two will be featured in the upcoming Netflix comedy "The Last Laugh" starring Chevy Chase and Richard Dreyfuss to be released in 2018.
Featured on Good Morning America and The Rachael Ray Show, Will & Anthony are most proud of their "ARTS MATTER!" Educational Outreach Initiative and Master Class Workshops that educate and inspire students to fearlessly pursue their passions.
Will is an acclaimed stage director and Anthony an emerging songwriter whose original songs are featured on the brothers’ EP "The Gift Is You" and upcoming "The New Classics" album that will include fresh takes on timeless classics as well as originals.
