I was 13 years old when I met and began violin lessons with Gene Lombardi. Because of his expert teaching and guidance, I was able to perform in two professional orchestras: 17 years as a first violinist with the Phoenix Symphony Orchestra, and 21 years with the Richmond Sympony Orchcestra of Virginia. When I attended ASU, I was the Concertmaster of the ASU Orchestra (under Gene Lombardi), and was allowed to solo on the exquisite Peter Guarnerius violin owned by ASU. I will always be grateful to Gene because were it not for his talent and quidance, I would never have achieved the success that I have enjoyed on the violin, throughout my life. Gene, you were a Mentor, an exquisite performer and a dear friend. And Sue, you too, were a part of it all.......in loving remembrance, Jan Sessions White

I was friends with Dr. Lombardi's daughter Genanne, and I remember how kind and gracious the whole family was. Their house was one of elegance and refinement, centered on an appreciation of beautiful music.

Some of my happiest days as an undergraduate was playing in the ASU Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Dr. Lombardi. I certainly learned a lot from him. He was a firm disciplinarian and a very encouraging teacher. I built much of my record collection on our orchestra repertory. I'm just a little sad seeing the photo of Dr. Lombardi looking so handsome with his violin.

I offer my deepest condolences to you Mrs. Lombardi and your family. God bless you all.

Professor Lombardi could make a violin sound as if you had never heard it before. He could make it "sing". Eugene Lombardi will be missed by his church, his loving wife Sue, and his peers at Arizona State University. What has been in my mind is the warmth of his discussions about the classic musical pieces. I am honored to have known this fine gentleman. My sympathy. - John Pecoraro
