YSU Penguin Productions is a student programming board made up of highly-motivated individuals who have a passion for bringing music events to our community. Our advisors and student members work to actively create, promote, organize, and produce high-quality experiences that are tailored to our campus needs.
Our team takes care of business, hospitality, outreach, operations, talent booking/scouting, marketing, and curating activities for all of our events. The student committee members gain valuable, real-world, experience in the design and production of major events that will transfer into skills for a variety of career paths.
Penguin Productions actively seeks opportunities to collaborate with the greater Youngstown community through both entertainment and philanthropic ventures. The members of the Penguin Productions committee are determined to provide the campus and local community with exceptional entertainment that appeals to all interests and passions.
We produce yearly music festivals such as Fall Fire Fest and Federal Frenzy as well as our Concert Series events that happen sporadically throughout the year.
