The three students are wearing choir robes and are gathered around Demps, looking at the sheet music. They are standing in front of a door. On the wall to the right of them is a sign that reads, "Not responsible for any musical instruments, music, or personal property left in this room." On the back of the photo is a yearbook photo stamp. The photographer of the image is unknown.
