On March 4, 2017, Joey Bandi '17 and Dr. Nancy DeSalvo performed “A Triptych of Fugues” for four-handed piano at the Society of Composers' Region VIII Conference at Washington State University's School of Music in Pullman, Washington. The music piece was composed by Dr. Daniel Perttu, Chair of the School of Music at Westminster College.

Dr. DeSalvo is an Associate Professor at Westminster College in New Wilmington, Pennsylvania where she teaches applied piano, vocal and instrumental accompanying, piano techniques courses and music history. Joey Bandi, a senior music education and music performance major, is a son of Joseph and Debbie Bandi and a graduate of West Allegheny Senior High School.

"Joey and Dr. DeSalvo’s performance was absolutely brilliant,” says Perttu. “I was so proud that they represented my music so well. Dr. DeSalvo is a wonderful performer, and I was extremely impressed with the work of Joey Bandi who played so very well.  I am very much indebted to them!" 

The SCI Region VIII conference is a professional conference for composers that selects works to be programmed in a competitive, peer-review process. Only a small proportion of compositions are selected.
