During her academic career, she additionally served as a pianist and organist for area churches and organizations such as the Choral Society of the Palm Beaches. She is widely known as a recitalist and accompanist.
With leadership from Music Department Chair Dr. Ken Phillips, an endowed scholarship has been established in honor of Marlene Woodward-Cooper. When awarded, the annual scholarship will support a piano student who exemplifies the mission of PBA.
