Magician TJ Hill

TJ Hill worked at The Cuckoo’s Nest Magic Shop in Pittsburgh part-time while attending Penn State University. A member of the SAM (Society of American Magicians) and IBM (International Brotherhood of Magicians), he also studied with some of the Pittsburgh greats. He eventually earned the title of “Official Magician of the Pittsburgh Penguins” and started performing locker room shows, VIP events, and weddings for some of the players. After thousands of performances all over the country, he still respects the art of close-up and stage magic. Any event updates will be noted on our campus calendar at montalto.psu.edu/calendar. Parking is also free of charge to the public during the day in Green Lot 1 across from the Multipurpose Center (MAC). After 5:00 p.m., the public can park in any available space on campus.

Irish blessing is one of the most requested Irish music and dance ensembles on the contemporary world music scene today. Deidre has danced with the Chieftains at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., and the Myerhoff Symphony Hall in Baltimore, Md., and is a rising fiddle phenomenon, famous for her signature-style melodic phrases, heavily influenced by the “old school” players from Ireland. Every day is St. Patrick’s Day when Irish Blessing takes the stage. This “Unity in Diversity” event is sponsored by the Diversity Committee and paid for by Student Activities Fees.
