Sally's wish for her birthday via email : “they're playing Beethoven's Sixth Symphony - the Symphonie Pastorale, one of my favorites, and a Strauss Oboe concerto.  Most of you work or otherwise have very busy lives, but I thought it might be a tempting break for a few hours?  It's gorgeous and dreamy music and not at all work-like.”
I was tempted and it was deeply wonderful. I have very little - close to zero of music like this.It was exquisite. I did this no-no by recording some of that precious “working” rehearsals.. Friends of Sally's were lovely, the audience was wonderful music aficionados with NY flair.

What were the most important things you learned from Sal?

Ivy Arce
She was so generous, smart, wonderful. We meet in 91. She always made me feel loved. She fought to save my life - and she did as she did for so many. I love she was an avid farmer. Loyal friend. A social justice fighter. I love and adore this wonderful person. She taught me to challenge everything. She is one of the most important soul I have been blessed to share in this lifetime. Love Sally Cooper - so very much. Te adoro y te agradezco por tanto mas.
