ALTOONA, Pa. — Jerry Zolten, professor of communication arts and sciences and integrative arts at Penn State Altoona, is sharing a musical message for all as we finish the semester off-campus and online.

The video comes with the admonition, "Music self-played is happiness self-made." Zolten encourages any and all to make their own music to share.
