62nd Annual Alumni Choral Spring Concert Scheduled

Alfred State is pleased to present the 62nd Annual Alumni Choral Spring Concert, directed by Anthony Cappadonia, professor emeritus of music at Alfred State. The concert will be held on Sunday, April 28, 2013, at 2 p.m. in the Anthony C. Cappadonia Auditorium, Orvis Activities Center, on the Alfred campus, and is free of charge and open to the public.

Performers for the concert include the Alfred State Voices, Alumni Jazz Singers, ’87 Collegiate Quartet, ’57 Varieties – Instrumental Jazz Combo, Alfred State Alumni Choir, and a finale by the combined alumni and College choirs.

A sampling of musical selections planned for the concert are “Do Not Fear”, “Come on and Dance with Me”, String of Pearls”, and “Shenandoah”. The finale song, “The Blessing of Aaron,” will be dedicated to the memory of loved ones.

Each spring, alumni from across the United States return to Alfred to attend the Annual Choir Alumni Weekend for rehearsals, a dinner/dance, and this concert. The Alfred State Concert Choir Alumni Organization was formed in 1957 and maintains an active membership of over 400. This organization has supported the college concert choir with donations and fundraising efforts over the years to provide scholarships for college choir members, and established the Anthony C. Cappadonia Scholarship Fund to be used by the college to assist future students.
