Dave Pietro, a Southborough native and 1982 graduate of Algonquin Regional High School


Southborough – While working fulltime Mondays through Thursdays as a music assistant professor of jazz studies at New York University (NYU), Southborough native Dave Pietro travels internationally weekends to play saxophone at clubs, festivals, schools and concert halls. His busy schedule includes a local stop Saturday, April 12, 7:30 p.m., at the Steeple Coffeehouse.

“It’s always great to go home and share your art with friends and family,” he said.

Pietro’s love of music began at age 5. Returning from service at St. Anne Church, he sat at a home organ and duplicated hymns he had heard. He also enjoyed listening to his parents’ extensive collection of swing records. His musical interests grew in school.
