NOTE: This event took place prior to event cancellations and before social distancing orders were put in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Lock Haven University freshman Sarah Rowles, of Mifflintown, participated in the 73rd Annual PA Intercollegiate Band Festival hosted by California University earlier this year.

Rowles was selected by audition to participate in the prestigious ensemble comprised of college musicians from around the state and directed by Dr. Dennis Fisher from the University of North Texas.

“It was an honor to represent Lock Haven University at the 73rd Annual Intercollegiate Band Festival,” Rowles said. “It was an amazing experience to be able to work with such talented musicians under the direction of Dr. Fisher. I have made many friends and memories in those couple of days and I feel that I have grown as a musician through the experience.”

Rowles is a health and physical education major at LHU and in addition to playing alto saxophone in the LHU Band, she also participates in cheerleading.
