Dear Dean Niles,

I am happy to send you this DVD of our Memorial Service, "Berklee Remembers VT" held on Thursday, April 19. As I said in my email, it was a musical service and very moving. It helped our community to heal a bit (or start to heal) and there are many members of our community with VT ties (friends, colleagues, grew up in the VT area, etc.)

Our hope is that you may be able to have a viewing for whoever might be interested. It is short, about 40 minutes. This was the first time in our history (I have been here 40 years) that an entire Berklee Performance Center audience left an event in complete silence. Amazing.

We wish you peace and recovery.

Lawrence E. Bethune
Vice President for Student Affairs
and Dean of Students
