An upcoming documentary series produced by Harrisburg University Presents will seek to answer the question of what it takes to prepare a band for its first tour.  The “Emerging Artists Series” is produced by Harrisburg University’s video production team in partnership with Wasserman Music and Rock Lititz, the live event production campus in Lancaster County that’s attracted big stars like Taylor Swift, Beyonce and Phish.

The first 22-minute episode will air at 5:30 p.m. Sunday, June 25, on WHTM-TV ABC 27.

It will feature musical group Certainly So, an indie-rock band from Birmingham, Alabama, that’s now based out of Nashville, as they prepare for their first tour.  The Emerging Artist Series is intended to allow rising stars to rehearse at an established facility like Rock Lititz while Harrisburg University’s video production team records to give a behind-the-scenes look at the music entertainment industry.

More about the documentary is here:

Harrisburg University’s Director of Live Entertainment, Frank Schofield, developed the Emerging Artist Series in partnership with Rock Lititz and Wasserman Music, based out of Los Angeles, CA.

The program is two-fold. First, it empowers up-and-coming artists to experience world-class amenities with two days of rehearsal time at Rock Lititz, followed by a live show at XL Live in Harrisburg.,

Second, the experience will be captured by Harrisburg University’s in-house video production team to create a 22-minute documentary-style episode that illustrates the stories and journeys behind these Emerging Artists and the rarely-seen behind-the-scenes look at the music entertainment industry.

The return of vibrant live music to Harrisburg underscores the importance of Harrisburg University’s role in fostering artistic and cultural experiences within the community. By attracting notable bands and reconnecting people with the magic of live performances, the University is creating lasting memories and contributing to the city’s thriving cultural landscape.
