Thanks to the Mary Behrend Cultural Fund and the John M. Lilley Library, the Arts and Arts Administration programs will be expanding the Spring Art Show at Penn State Erie, The Behrend College, this year. Usually just the work of photography students is displayed in the Kochel Center. This year, all Penn State Behrend students, alumni, staff, and faculty are invited to submit work.
Tony Vallone, a professor of English at Penn State Dubois, will join members of the faculty and staff of Penn State Erie, The Behrend College, in sharing short selections of their poetry and prose during Behrend Reads. The event will be held at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, March 5, in Penn State Behrend’s Larry and Kathryn Smith Chapel.
The Young People’s Chorus of Erie, a youth outreach program of the School of Humanities and Social Sciences at Penn State Erie, The Behrend College, will hold open auditions later this month.
Open rehearsals give young people between the ages of 7–18 the opportunity to attend a rehearsal and learn about YPC Erie. The chorus is northwest Pennsylvania’s only comprehensive youth choral music program and children from 35 different schools participate.
