Notes and Editorial Reviews

P. Peter Sacco was born into an intensely musical family in Albion, N.Y. A long line of professional and amateur singers and instrumentalists provided a diverse and supportive context in which Sacco states: "I never thought of doing anything but music. I started at age four on the piano and haven't stopped since." He attended the Eastman Preparatory School of Music in Rochester where he studied theory, piano and voice. He was drafted during the Korean conflict and stationed in Frankfurt, Germany. There he studied at the Frankfurt School of Music. In 1953, he went back to Eastman, from which he graduated. From 1959 to 1981, he served on the faculty of San Francisco State University. Today he continues to teach, perform, and compose in Read more Ashland, Oregon. Read less
