I was touched early in my career by Father Merlet’s generosity of spirit and his dream of a better world through the sharing of music. He reminded us young musicians of the beauty and relevance of our endeavors, even as we were learning to navigate the complexities of a professional environment. For that, I
will be eternally grateful.
