Anthony "Tony" John Barletta, MD was a medical doctor, a screenwriter, a bike racer, an adventurer, a studio executive, and a passionate lover of music and life. Tony loved learning, thrived on challenge and considered the violin to be the most beautiful and challenging instrument in the world. For Tony the violin was a boundless sea of learning and he set sail on it with his characteristic vigor. His relationship with his violin became one of the most treasured in his life and a respite from his high-pressure world.
The Tony Barletta Fund has generously been established to provide instruments to Harmony Project students in the hope that their lives will be equally enriched and that his love of learning, challenge and adventure will inspire generations to come.
