Dear members of the University of Pittsburgh community,
Our beloved Geri A. Allen, Associate Professor and Director of Jazz Studies, passed away yesterday after a year-long battle with cancer.  She was surrounded by family and life-long friends.

Assistant professor Michael Heller recently had a wonderful opportunity to visit with Ernie Garner, the twin brother of the late Erroll Garner. Heller and Garner met in the William Pitt Union to see the Jazz Hall of Fame which currently features an exhibit on Erroll Garner that Professor Heller curated. We are so grateful Mr.
