Grossman Family, Father Vassalotti, Bring Classical Back to Brooklyn

The classical music performance Oct. 24, at St. Francis of Paola Church was an opportunity for the Grossman family to perform publicly since the COVID-19 pandemic forced the cancelation of live musical performances in New York City. The event also was a reunion for Eric Grossman and parish pastor Father Thomas Vassalotti — they attended the Juilliard School together in the 1980s.
