I would like to thank CDT writer Lori Falce for her recent article on the abundance of cultural opportunities in central Pennsylvania. It is always refreshing to receive media focus on the arts in our sports-saturated area. However, the article referred only to the wealth of cultural opportunities sponsored by Penn State University. I would like to encourage the residents of the Centre Region and beyond to also attend and support the huge variety of superb performances by local non-university organizations. Come and be amazed by the all-professional Pennsylvania Centre Orchestra, currently celebrating their 25th season, the Nittany Valley Symphony, Central PA Youth Orchestra, State College Choral Society, Nittany Valley Children’s Choir, Ballet Theatre of State College, State College Community Theatre, Nittany Theatre, and the list goes on! Ms. Falce is correct that “when it comes to culture…in State College, the challenge can be so many choices”. But locally in the arts we are MORE than just Penn State!
