Music in the Park veterans are probably already familiar with David Sagal, who has played in a jazz quintet over the past several years at the city's annual outdoor concert series. He is an executive and attorney at Warner Bros. with three children — two of them attend La Cañada High School. Sagal, 58, sat down with the Valley Sun in his La Cañada home to discuss music, tax rates and the impending challenges the school district will face.
How is music a part of your family?
I have a background in music. I play music in the park, I've played for the last six years in my band, and I was a very serious saxophone player in high school; and then in college, I continued to play.
My son, Bo, played clarinet and guitar in the jazz band, clarinet in the marching band and orchestra. My daughter, Nora, is an exceptional bassoon player. She's been in California All State Orchestra for two years in a row. She also sings in choir. They all sing.
