ALTOONA- Penn State Altoona student Ben Eberhart will release an album of his musical compositions on disc and on YouTube for his senior capstone project. The release date is April 23 at noon, and copies will be available in the Misciagna Family Center for Performing Arts.
A native of Claysburg, PA., Eberhart is majoring in integrative arts with a focus on music theory and music production. He also has a minor in communications. Eberhart has been playing the guitar for more than ten years, six of them professionally. He has performed with local bands, the University Jazz band, church bands, and choirs, as well as for plays and shows, benefits, and seminars. He also studied and recorded with Grammy Award-winner Mike Reid in the spring of 2013 and created movie trailers with original audio.
Eberhart states, “It’s not the chance of success that inspires me to play. It’s every artist, every genre, creating something that lasts, and the feelings others and myself get from music that inspires me. I want to establish my credibility as a musician and work with others that want to push the industry into new, exciting realms where we can say we have actually done something memorable and positive for society. Music is a universal language that everyone can enjoy and connect with, and I take pride in being a part of something that’s bigger than me. With this demo I wish to give the public something current, underground, and local to enjoy.”
