A Jewish Bassoon Player from NJ Walks into a Rehearsal Hall and Comes Out Catholic

EmmaLee Italia - The Monitor - published on 07/21/14

Despite his many responsibilities, Doswell can attest to how well Msgr. Frisina’s personality compliments his compositions. He remains down-to-earth, approachable, and radiates love for his work.

"Music is how he expresses himself in the world," Doswell said. "His whole language is music – his faith, catechism … he really doesn’t understand what a gift he has."

"He lives the joy and faith of his music … If you’re in his presence, no matter what, you’re gonna be happy!"

Details for upcoming concert events in Plainfield and Basking Ridge, as well as a full filmography and discography, may be found on Msgr. Frisina’s U.S. website.
