Enter The Haggis Live! to be Filmed at Plattsburgh State Dec. 4, 5
PLATTSBURGH, NY __ Enter The Haggis , an explosive Celtic-rock quintet based in Toronto, Canada, will use the Hartman Theatre at Plattsburgh State University of New York as a backdrop for a video to be filmed during two live concerts on Thursday and Friday, Dec. 4 and 5.
The Student Association Activities Coordination Board is working with Adirondack Productions to produce the video, which will be aired nationwide on the Public Broadcasting System possibly during the local stations' telethons in March 2004.
Jon Conwall, S.A. vice president for activities, said he was excited about bringing
the group to Plattsburgh State for the video.
Michael Harrington, assistant to the S.A. vice president for activities said," Both John Conwall, vice president for activities, and myself are excited about being able to offer this type of event to the student body. Hopefully, the publicity from this will help show the students and community the positive side to college life at Plattsburgh State."
