    This was the inaugural season 1985-1986, of the UWGB Show Jazz Choir, under Trini Chavez. My apologies, to those whose names escape me at the moment (or that I misspell). I was in the backing band, on bass.

    This was taken in the mid-80s (probably around 1987). The blonde woman in the upper left is Tina Thielen (now Gaffney). The male student the farthest lower left is Scott Oftedahl. The female student kneeling on the right side is Ellen ??? I have contacted them to see if they can identify more.
