Philip Varriale’s Eulogy

On September 19, 2005, the music world lost one of its most dedicated students, teachers, and performers: William Vacchiano. After a long battle with various physical ailments, Vacchiano passed away at Cabrini

Medical Center in Manhattan from respiratory failure. Philip Varriale,

MD, honored Vacchiano’s life with this eulogy delivered on September

24, 2005:

On a crisp, sunny autumn day in 1982, I took myself from my home in Westchester and drove to the residence of William Vacchiano. I had never met Mr. Vacchiano, but I had heard a great deal about him as the trumpet icon of the New York Philharmonic and his reputation as a legendary teacher of his time.

I had been sufficiently busy in medical practice as a cardiologist, but my intent was to resurrect my passion to play trumpet after a hiatus of nearly twenty-five years. On arrival, I strolled a short walkway bringing me to the door of a solidly built, two-story brick house in an attractive and well-preserved suburban neighborhood of Queens, New York.
