John DelVento’s passion for music permeates his life. He has been composing, performing, and teaching music for more than 15 years, primarily in the film and television industries.
John has been a lover and student of music as long as he can remember. He began studying the euphonium, a unique brass instrument, as a child, and performed in his first solo recital at the age of 13. John was a double music major at The Hartt School studying music education and performance, dabbling in music composition and production projects throughout. He found his home in Film and TV music, leading to commercial placements with Nike, Toyota, and Visa, among others. Network television shows that have featured John’s work include “Chopped,” “Nova,” “Practical Jokers,” “Hunting Hitler,” “Amish Mafia,” “Black Ink Crew,” “Love and Hip-Hop,” “The Island,”, “WWE: Smackdown”, and more. In addition to commercials and television, John also enjoys composing short and feature film scores, most notably for the documentaries “Veil of Silence,” and “FagBug: Nation,” and the award-winning horror film “Lucifer’s Angels.”
While many composers abandon their study of musical instruments, John continues to embrace his first musical love. As a euphoniumist, he has performed with orchestras and bands on the timeless stages of Carnegie Hall, The Musikverein, Symphony Hall, The Bushnell, and many other storied venues across the world.
Currently residing in Connecticut, John is a member of Broadcast Music Inc., the Society of Composers and Lyricists, the National Association for Music Education, and the American Society of Music Arrangers and Composers.
In 2020 John started “The House of DelVento” a long-form variety podcast for both musical and non-musical conversation.
