In March 2002, the Theatre Program at Old Dominion lost one of its highly prized students who was killed by her partner. In memory of this student, and in an effort to educate ourselves about the warning signals of relationships that have gone wrong, "Willow Song" was created to commemorate a loved one and to caution her survivors. Co-sponsored by the Monarch Dance Team and Pi Beta Phi.
