The Joan Chambers Concert Series at the University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg will present Zach Rohlwing, piano and baritone, at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 8 in the Mary Lou Campana Chapel and Lecture Hall.

The free concert is open to the public.

Rohlwing, a chorus member with the Pittsburgh Opera, is an adjunct instructor of piano and voice at Pitt-Greensburg and serves as the accompanist to the Pitt-Greensburg Chorale and Chamber Singers.

He serves as music director at St. Mark's Lutheran Church in New Stanton and Madison United Methodist Church in Madison.

Rohlwing has performed widely as a vocalist, holding roles in Simpson College's productions of Mozart's “Le Nozze di Figaro” and “Die Zauberflöte.” As a member of the Madrigal Singers at the college in Indianola, Iowa, he toured with the group to the Netherlands, Belgium, France and Italy while earning a bachelor's degree in music.

He received a master's of music degree from the University of South Dakota, where he served as a graduate teaching assistant and sang with the university's Chamber Singers”

The Pitt-Greensburg concert series is named in honor of Joan Chambers, the late wife of president emeritus George F. Chambers. She was an ardent supporter of Pitt-Greensburg in the community for many years. She enjoyed participating in book-discussion groups, attending cultural events and hosting themed luncheons at her home.

The Children's Literature Collection in Millstein Library, another of her passions, was developed and named in her honor.

The Hempfield campus was founded 50 years ago.
