Downtown Reception: It's a Wrap!

We hope you enjoyed the virtual house party. If you missed Biff Gottehrer OPC ’04, chef and owner of Ripplewood Whiskey and Craft, making ricotta gnocchi from scratch – a work of art – or Vince Johnson OPC '04, founder of Urban Movement Arts, demonstrating house dance and hip hop in a jam session with collaborators, now's your chance. You can also test your trivia acumen, presented by Ella DiGiovanni OPC '13 (answers at the end – no cheating!) and listen to an original song by country music singer and songwriter Matt Gorman OPC '17 that he performed live. We know you'll agree that the considerable talents of our alumni brought down the house!  We'll see you in person at the 2022 Downtown Reception.
