The Performing Arts Department would like to invite you, your family, and friends to its free, annual Instrumental Music Winter Concert, “A Night of Broadway,” on Saturday, Dec. 9, beginning at 2 p.m. at the Orvis Activities Center Cappadonia Auditorium.

The concert band, under the direction of Gerald Ives, will perform selections from the Broadway musicals West Side Story, The Sound of Music, Music Man, and A Portrait of Andrew Lloyd Webber works.

The rock ensemble, under the leadership of student Anthony Halagian (computer information systems, Buffalo), will perform classic rock numbers. The concert will close with the jazz ensemble performing music of Chicago, James Brown, Duke Ellington, and others.

Please come, watch, and enjoy as Alfred State’s talented musicians ring in the holiday season.

Attendees are also encouraged to bring in their unused instruments and donate them to help an aspiring young musician – who cannot afford an instrument – enjoy and create the sounds of music.
