Herb Gellis is a composer of distinctive works, strongly rhythmic, melodic and emotionally satisfying, with special emphasis on works for orchestra. His small but growing catalog of works are decidedly "neo-romantic". He has studied violin and oboe under respectively Claudia Fountain and Patricia Mitchell, both of the former San Jose Symphony.

Herb was Webmaster and a past-President of the San Francisco chapter of the National Association of Composers, USA, and is currently webmaster of the OrchestraList, an international forum for orchestra professionals. In 1993 he founded the Hewlett-Packard Symphony Orchestra, which he managed as music director through its 16th season, and also played in the second violin and percussion sections; That orchestra then morphed into the South Bay Philharmonic, of which Herb was President and Music Director. He is also a past President of the Silicon Valley Arts Coalition, a consortium of local small-budget art groups.

In 2003 he created the Harmonic Services Group to provide both music and software services, including music copyist and publishing services, website and application development.
