Harrisburg and Central Pennsylvania have become a hotbed for venues for live music acts. Maybe not the huge stadium show, although Hershey host those, but the places that can seat 1,500 people or less. And the bands may be less well-known on the radio but have national followings.

Harrisburg University of Science and Technology has been instrumental in bringing many of the acts to the region.

Dr. Eric Darr, Harrisburg University’s president, and Frank Schofield, director of live entertainment and media services for Harrisburg University, joined WITF’s The Spark.

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.
