Accompanist, MPC Choral Ensembles
"My work with Sal has opened my eyes, ears, and heart to music in ways which have helped me grow significantly. I remember the semester we did his new composition, 'Absalom.' At every rehearsal I was incredibly and increasingly moved by how Sal's music gave voice to the unbearable grief King David felt at the death of his son, Absalom. It wasn't just a moving text set to beautiful music. In 'Absalom' the text and the music became more than the sum of their parts. It was as if a new spiritual entity had been created. 'Absalom' had a life of its own."
