CODA, the saxophone/keyboard duo of Scott Dorff and Malcolm Anderson, performed a selection of popular jazz and swing tunes for the sold-out crowd of 165 seniors.

From the traditional “Beer Barrel Polka” to CODA’s signature song, “In the Mood,” Dorff and Anderson thrilled the crowd with an energetic performance.

Following CODA’s Snowflake Days performance, seniors enjoyed a mid-day meal of chicken and vegetables, fruit salad and pumpkin pie.
