The School of Music and the Penn State Alumni Association will travel across the state in anticipation of their tenth annual President’s Concert. The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. tonight (Tuesday, March 1) in Harrisburg’s Forum Auditorium, and is hosted by President Eric Barron.

This year’s concert includes performances from the Concert Choir, the Symphonic Wind Ensemble, and the Centre Dimensions Jazz Ensemble, all led by directors from the School of Music. The program for the event includes songs like Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “The Night They Called It a Day” by Matt Denis.

The annual event allows students to perform in some of the most notable venues on the East Coast such as Carnegie Hall in New York, The Kimmel Center in Philadelphia, and The Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.

Admission to the concert is free and no ticket is required. Before the event, the Penn State Alumni Association will host a reception in the Main Rotunda of the State Capitol Building from 6 to 7 p.m., which includes food and an open bar. Admission is $35 for Alumni Association members, $50 for non-members, and $10 for students ages 6-17. Children five and under can enter free of charge. All reception guests must register prior to the event and are given reserved seating for the concert.
