Irish Blessing, Irish Music and Dance at Penn State Mont Alto

‘Unity in Diversity’ events continue to create awareness and understanding

MONT A LOT, Pa. ― Irish Blessing, Irish Music and Dance will bring an Irish heritage musical extravaganza to campus on March 22 from 12:20 to 1:10 p.m. in The Millstream Café at Penn State Mont Alto. The public can enjoy the performance free of charge. Lunch is available for purchase.

Every day is St. Patrick’s Day when Irish Blessing takes the stage. The group is one of the most requested Irish music and dance ensembles on the contemporary world music scene today. With driving instrumentals, soaring vocals, and hard-hitting percussive step dance, the group delivers an unapologetically traditional experience, carrying on the purest forms of traditional Irish music.

The Penn State Mont Alto Diversity Committee promotes, supports, conceptualizes and participates in events related to diversity on campus and in the local community. During spring 2017, the Diversity Committee is hosting “Unity in Diversity” events to create an awareness that people are different and to develop the understanding and appreciation for such differences.
