The Hollywood Concert Orchestra, an ensemble of America’s finest musicians, has become one of the premier pops ensembles in the world. With its unique presentation of the latest TV, movie, and Broadway themes written and arranged especially for the orchestra, the Hollywood Concert Orchestra is known as “the Orchestra of the Stars” featuring the best and brightest guest artists and soloists in lively and entertaining performances. That is what THE HOLLYWOOD CONCERT ORCHESTRA specializes in…the music that “made” the movies!
The Hollywood Concert Orchestra was founded in 1999 by John R. Giattino and Judith M. Giattino. Both John and Judith have been promoting concerts since that time, and have taken the Hollywood Concert Orchestra tours across the United States, as well as the People’s Republic of China, Japan, Taiwan and Korea.
The Hollywood Concert Orchestra has toured recently with the famous movie star Ms. Shirley Jones, who received an Oscar for her performance in the movie Elmer Gantry, which also starred Burt Lancaster. Ms Jones also starred in a very successful television series, The Partridge Family, which won several Tony Awards.
Throughout his many years as a producer, John Giattino has been associated with such great artists as Mantovani, Percy Faith, Henry Mancini, Arthur Fiedler and many other ‘greats’ in the pop orchestra genre. For many years, Mr. Giattino was a general musical contractor for Columbia Artists. He also provided touring orchestras for such artists as Rosemary Clooney, Boots Randolph, Chet Atkins, Floyd Cramer, Robert Goulet, Mitzi Gaynor, Carol Lawrence, and Frank Gorshin. John and Judith also produced a tour titled, A Tribute to Mario Lanza, featuring former Metropolitan Opera tenor Mr. Thomas Booth.

His concerts have been broadcast on radio and television in over 50 countries.
As a dedicated advocate of contemporary music, Dr. Averbach has performed and recorded several world premieres for major labels, which have sold more than half a million copies around the globe.
