On October 5th Charlie Silecchia joined the baritone section of the Nittany Knights. His "Man of Note" is Mike Andriaccio. Mike encouraged Charlie to sing with us and we all appreciate his effort. Pictured from left to right is Charlie and our president, Terry Roof. A plaque is presented to all newly inducted members of the International Barbershop Harmony Society.
Rob Oelhaf (middle) has been installed as our newest member!
Although his joining was in March of 2020, this event had to be postponed to June 14, 2021 due to our Covid pause.
We are delighted to have Rob join our Lead section and we thank his "Man of Note", Paul Wagner (pictured far right), for inviting Rob to join the chorus.
Bill Drosnes, former president, bestowed the honors.
The Nittany Knights get ready to clean up the stretch of Rt. 26 in State College that we "adopted." How do we prepare? We sing!
Though it was only 3/4 of a mile, ten of us spent two hours and collected eight large bags of trash--part of our commitment as a community service organization.
We've been working on the highway!
After more than a year of lockdown, the Nittany Knights emerged from hibernation on Monday, May 3, with an evening of pizza, cake and catching up.
Blowing a year's worth of dust off our vocal cords, we revisited some of our favorite songs and resolved to get back to our standard of excellence, and surpass it, in the coming year.
Although no public performances are yet scheduled until September 24th (at the Lemont Village Green), we will be returning to our weekly rehearsal schedule, Monday evenings at 7:00 p.m. at South Hills School of Business and Technology in State College. As always, we welcome visitors and auditions.
Congratulations to Mike Andriaccio for being recognized as 2020 Barbershopper of the Year !!!! Mike was recognized for his efforts to keep all the Knights connected during the pandemic, by managing online social activities via Zoom. Needless to say, the Nittany Knights were unable to meet in person for the past year. Thanks to Mike's efforts, we maintained our friendships and look forward to singing together very soon.
