Penn State Athletics and the Penn State Blue Band will host their second annual Unrivaled Band Jam this Saturday, Sept. 26. It will take place at 1:15 p.m. at the Bryce Jordan Center, prior to the Penn State football game against San Diego State at 3:30. The Unrivaled Band Jam will feature twelve high schools performing alongside the Blue Band.

This event is free and open to the public, and will host a selection of high school bands from the surrounding area. These schools include: Everett High School, Holidaysburg High School, Lower Dauphin High School (Hummelstown, PA), Middletown Area High School, Mifflinburg High School, Montoursville High School, Portage High School, Saucon Valley High School (Hellertown, PA), Shikellamy High School (Sunbury, PA), Saint Mary’s High School, Susquenita High School (Duncannon, PA), and Sussex Technical High School (Georgetown, DE).

“We are so excited to have over 800 high school students join us this weekend for the second annual Unrivaled Blue Band Jam,” Blue Band President Pat Burke said. “This is an excellent opportunity for high school students to see what it is like to be in the Blue Band, and we can’t wait to be able to share the game day experience with them.”

First-year Blue Band director Grergory Drane is excited for his first Band Jam and the Blue Band’s second event in the Bryce Jordan Center.

“The Blue Band is thrilled to be returning to the Bryce Jordan Center to perform for the Unrivaled Band Jam,” Drane said. “It’s a great way to engage with the young, talented musicians in the area and give them a taste of what the Blue Band and Penn State is all about.
