Penn State names new laureate

Anthony T. Leach, associate professor of music and music education in Penn State's College of Arts and Architecture, has been named the University's second Penn State laureate. He succeeds the inaugural laureate, Kim Cook, professor of music in cello. Penn State's new laureate, a tenor vocalist, pianist and music educator, plans to engage audiences and help them connect to music as part of his yearlong duties to raise awareness of the arts and enrich the public's cultural experience. Featured in this video is "Walk Together Children," a song arranged by Leach in 1998 for his church choir at New Bethel Baptist Church in Washington, DC
