Paul Salamunovich dies

Paul Salamunovich died on April 3 at age 86.

I got to know him when he was a clinician (twice) at our Pacific Lutheran University summer choral workshops.

He was a wonderful man, devoted to his family, to St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church which he served so well, to Gregorian chant, and was beloved by everyone I know who'd worked with him. He conducted countless all-state, all region choirs over the years.

He sang with Roger Wagner from the time he was a boy, sang and conducted for Hollywood movies, and had a memorable 10-year tenure with the LA Master Chorale, a choir Wagner founded.
