Cecile McLorin Salvant
Dates:Thursday, September 14, 2017
Title:Cecile McLorin Salvant
Description:Cécile McLorin Salvant, whose For One to Love earned the 2016 Grammy Award for Best Jazz Vocal Album, is “the finest jazz singer to emerge in the last decade,” writes a New York Times critic. Wynton Marsalis is convinced of her greatness. “She has poise, elegance, soul, humor, sensuality, power, virtuosity, range, insight, intelligence, depth, and grace,” he says of the singer, who has been thrilling listeners across America and Europe since she won the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Vocals Competition in 2010. McLorin Salvant—who is fascinated by the history of American music and the connections among jazz, vaudeville, blues, and folk—meticulously selects her repertoire. She’s known for unearthing rarely recorded gems that tell powerful stories. “I’ve never heard a singer of her generation who has such a command of styles ranging from Bessie Smith to Betty Carter,” says pianist and composer Aaron Diehl. “To have an artist with such a handle on jazz vocabulary while being extremely expressive and soulful, that’s very rare.” She will perform with her band—piano, bass, and drums—in concert at Schwab Auditorium.

Tri-Service POW/MIA Vigil
Dates:Friday, September 15, 2017
Title:Tri-Service POW/MIA Vigil
Description:This event is held every year on the Old Main Lawn and it is the Tri-Service ROTC Prisoner of War and Missing in Action (POW/MIA) Vigil. This event is hosted every year by Penn State’s chapter of the Arnold air society (AAS), better known as the Harry R. Armstrong Squadron. This is a professional, honorary, and service organization advocating the support of aerospace power. To give you a better understanding of the organization, the Arnold Air Society started at the University of Cincinnati in the year 1947 as an extracurricular for Cadets. The name "Arnold Air Society", was in honor of the Air Force's ONLY 5-Star General at the time, Henry "Hap" Arnold. The Arnold Air Society is affiliated with the Air Force Association (AFA), which is an Air Force magazine that informs and connects service members from all levels about what is going on in the community. That being said, the organization is very prestigious because it has high standards and values when it comes to volunteering and paying tribute to those who have served before us. This background is important to know because it is what has molded Penn State’s chapter of the organization to do more for the community. Just last year, the POW/MIA Vigil lasted around 30-40 minutes. Basically, this event recognizes those veterans who fell victim to imprisonment during war and those who went missing without a trace in the line of action. In the past, there has been a missing man table with honor guard for 24 hours, as well as various speakers and even some performances by Air Force ROTC’s very own a capella group, "The Wild Blue Younders", (which I myself am a member). Having said that, let me make clear that this vigil is not only an Arnold Air Society effort, or an Air Force ROTC effort. It is a Tri-Service effort from all of the ROTC branches at Penn State. I am simply a Public Affairs officer trying to get the word out. Each year over 200 Cadets and Midshipmen have been in attendance in addition to all of those who paid tribute from the State College community. The event has turned out to be very successful in the last couple of years, but we could always use the help to make it better! The Harry R. Armstrong Squadron has had help from Penn State’s Social Media Manager who scheduled various Tweets to raise awareness about the event. The squadron was also able to have a live “On Air” interview at The Lion 90.7 FM where they recording a public service announcement, which turned out to be very influential. These public affairs projects paired with a couple breathtaking newspaper articles seemed to have been the determining point in what basically allowed the community to realize what we were honoring through this event. Last year turned out to be an amazing vigil and I say that because not only did the community react in a positive way, the area and even the nation took notice. Granting the squadron awards for its POW/MIA Vigil, the Harry R. Armstrong Squadron received an area level award at the University of Virginia for its public affairs efforts in regards to the vigil and furthermore received a national level award at Disney World for “Best Support of a POW Awareness Program.” We take great pride in this vigil because it means so much! It is a very humbling experience and we would like to share that with all that care to pay tribute. That being said, we would like to invite you to the vigil and furthermore, we would like to ask for your help by letting the community know about this award-winning event that honors those who are gone but never forgotten. The Vigil will take place on September 15, 2017 at 4:00pm. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.
