The Penn State Downtown Theatre was a lively place from noon to one yesterday. Emily Rowlands, coordinator of Research Publications' Research Unplugged series, introduced Susan Boardman, associate professor of music, to an audience of over 60 attendees, including the 3rd-5th grade students from Young Scholars of Central Pennsylvania, the region's newest public charter school. Boardman, who teaches voice and directs the Penn State Opera Theatre, presented an entertaining lecture and performance demonstration titled "Bravissimo! Turning Kids into Opera Buffs."
