Co-sponsored by the Cayuga County Community College Foundation, the CCC Student Activities Board, and the New England Foundation for the Arts, the final event included several performances by the group, which was held in the College’s Irene A. Bisgrove Community Theatre.  “The Cleo Parker Robinson Ensemble performance at Cayuga included electrifying dance presentations that had the audience on the edge of their seats.  The company was amazing to work with and the students still talk about their master class experience. We were fortunate to offer this uplifting cultural journey to our students and members of our community.”  Norman Lee, Director of Student Activities.
