The College's Joseph and Roberta Schwarz Theater was re-dedicated on Oct. 1 at a ceremony that included a reception and program. Dr. David Heath, College President, welcomed guests and remarks were given by Dr. Kim Kline, SUNY Vice Chancellor, Richard Feinbloom, President of the Optometric Center of New York; James Wilson, a friend of Joseph Schwarz and Ms. Lynn Trieu, a student.

Paul Bisaccia, renowned pianist, who specializes in playing music by George Gershwin was the featured artist. The theater is the site of the former Aeolian Hall where Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue" was debuted.
