Melissa Corwin Dr. Peterson December 12, 2007 Concert Report #2 On Wednesday, December 12, 2007, The Charles Garner Recital Hall of Southern Connecticut State University held a small ensemble concert featuring the Blues, Jazz Standards and Latin Jazz Bandsof SCSU.

The program consisted of the usual composer and title of each piece.
