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.
