Since 2017, Chybowski has been teaching in the Music Department. He is a professor of music education and conducting at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, as well as the conductor of the PSU Wind Ensemble.
The students of Pride of the Plains are “amazing,” he said, and he was looking forward to working with them. I’m excited to join Pitt State’s legendary game day atmosphere and expand my audience beyond the confines of the concert hall.
Chybowski has been a professor in the Music Department since 2017. He also directs the Penn State University Wind Ensemble and teaches courses in music education and conducting at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
According to Chybowski, the marching band will pay tribute to Doug Whitten at the second home game.
While the Pride of the Plains conducts a nationwide search for a permanent director, Chybowski is serving as interim director and he is “very excited and humbled” to take on this role.
I am not Doug’s replacement, but I will do my best to respect him and the other great men and women who have served the Pride of the Plains.
