Welcome to Our Class of 1968 Website


Previously at our Reunion










I thought classmates might appreciate this announcement from classmate Todd Barkan.  Maybe some of you in the Washington, DC area, or those visiting for activism or tourism might want to attend.

Very happy and excited as I try to get ready for the 2018 NEA Jazz Masters All Star Tribute Concert at the Kennedy Center at 8 pm, on Monday, April 16th 2018,  The concert will feature induction ceremonies, a short film about each inductee, and performances by Eddie Palmieri, Cecile McLorin Salvant, Christian McBride, Angelique Kidjo, Terri Lyne Carrington, Antonio Sanchez, and many others.  

The National Endowment of the Arts is providing free tickets to this special event at

​ ​

or by going to or by calling 800-444-1324 or

202-467-4600  (with a limit of four tickets per household.)  It would be

truly wonderful if some of you might be able to come to Washington, D.C. to share in this extraordinary occasion, but you can also watch and listen to this tribute concert in the comfort of your living room or while cruising in your car as the concert is live-streamed worldwide via or to, SiriusXM Real Jazz Channel 67, and on many NPR stations nationwide.  (It will also be archived and available for several weeks after the April 16th concert on

My fellow inductees -- Dianne Reeves, Pat Metheny, and Joanne Brackeen -- are all good friends and co

​lleagues​  that I have known and worked with since my Keystone Korner days in the 1970s and 1980s, and there should be a nice family feeling to these proceedings among all the musicians involved in this celebration.

Our classmate, Baltimore-based journalist Aaron Levin, has volunteered to create a kind of oral history of any class member who would like to speak on subjects of their choosing during the reunion weekend.

We will make one of the music practice rooms in Kahn Hall available for this purpose.  It is strictly voluntary for individuals, couples, friends, section mates, roommates, sports buddies and other groups.

This will augment a set of  reflections from some reunion committee members captured on video by Paula Gordon over the last year.

To get a head start on this program, Aaron will be contacting people in the Delaware-Maryland-Virginia-DC area.  If you'd like to participate, he could visit in your home or a mutually agreeable spot for interviews sessions.  Our stories are worth telling.

We hope you find this site a fun way to begin thinking about our upcoming reunion and, more importantly, an easy way to connect or to reconnect with your Oberlin friends, current and long-lost. Suggestions for the site are welcome.

Yes No

Steve Katz and Patrice Goodkind (formerly Pat Tarnoff ) began looking at Kahn Hall, our 2018 Reunion Headquarters, on the Oberlin website this week.

Steve discovered this link about the hall, published by CBS News.
