Philharmonic Orchestra to Play Carnegie Hall

This evening, the Penn State Philharmonic will take the stage inside America’s most prestigious concert hall, Carnegie Hall. The performance is the fourth in the President’s Concert series put on by the Alumni Association and the School of Music. Past venues for the event have been Heinz Hall in Pittsburgh, the John F. Kennedy Center for Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., and the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia.

“We’re all very excited to play at Carnegie Hall. There is no honor greater than being able to represent Penn State on of the world’s prestigious stages,” said percussionist Jamie Gunther.

Gerardo Edelstein, conductor of the Phil, said the difference in the caliber of venues between what the ensemble is used to performing in and Carnegie Hall is, “like eating gourmet food as opposed to fast food, or playing football in your backyard versus playing at Penn State’s Beaver Stadium.”

Tickets are still available for $15 from the Carnegie Hall box office if you’ll be in New York City tonight.

Three Words: For the Glory

When I sat back one night in January thinking about my time at Penn State, I tried to come up with a single word that would adequately describe my experiences here. As I attempted to determine what that magic word might be, my mind began to grasp the absurdity of that challenge. How could I possibly distill four years of my life, countless friendships, and untold numbers of memories, down to a single word? An impossible task to be sure. So instead, I took the easier road and went with three words: For the Glory.
