    This season ending event, underwritten by The Coeta and Donald Barker Foundation, showcased students from the COD Music Department playing as a jazz trio and vocalist providing background music for the attendees. Each musician was introduced by past president Mary E. Latta, and it was revealed that two had received acceptance to the Berklee College of Music in Boston.
