Anthony Montalto began his drum corps career with Heat Wave in 2015 as a member of the trumpet section. Since the 2015 season, Anthony has continued his involvement with the organization, marching with Heat Wave through 2018. He had the honor of serving as horn sergeant for the 2017 and 2018 seasons. He received the Member of the Year Award in 2017 and the Benny Pisani Esprit de Corps Award in 2018. In order to focus on school and his future career, Anthony took the 2019 season off from marching but was ecstatic to return to Heat Wave as webmaster and social media manager. He plans to return to the field in 2020 for his age out year.

Anthony is a junior at the University of Florida, majoring in telecommunication - news and minoring in music performance. At UF, he is a member of multiple music ensembles, including the Fightin’ Gator Marching Band, Symphonic Band, pep bands, and University Concert Choir. He is also a brother of Kappa Kappa Psi, the national honorary band fraternity, and served as the Alpha Eta chapter webmaster in 2018. As the current chapter correspondence secretary, Anthony oversees the correspondence committee, which handles all chapter-to-chapter, chapter-to-alumni, and social media relations.

Anthony enjoys glacier freeze Gatorade, spending time with friends and family, reading books, and arranging music. He is also a coffee fanatic and is sitting in Starbucks drinking his go-to order as he writes this.
