An audience of over 200 attended the 27 October event at the Paul Robeson Campus Center, which included an expanded exhibit (2 PM), concert documentary performance  (3 PM), and post-performance audience discussion (4:15 PM) followed by a reception. Video excerpts from prior Two Pianos performances plus 1987 Holocaust testimony of Halina's daughter Jola Hoffman also were displayed.  Attendees were greeted by background music from Halina's Newark concert performances.
