Anthony C. Cappadonia Endowment Fund
The Alfred State Concert Choir Alumni Organization was formed in 1957 and maintains an active membership of over 500. This organization supports the current concert choir with their donations and fundraising efforts in order to provide scholarships for present choir members. Thanks to the generosity of its members, the Choir Alumni was able to establish an endowed scholarship fund known as Anthony C. Cappadonia Endowment Fund to be used by the college to assist students. Once a year, in April, Alumni from all over the United States return to attend the Choir Alumni Weekend which includes a combined concert with the present college choir, an awards program and a dinner/dance.
Anthony C. Cappadonia Auditorium Naming
The enduring legacy of Alfred State's performing arts began when, in 1951, Anthony "Cappy" Cappadonia joined the college as instructor in the Music Department and director of the choral and instrumental groups. From the beginning, Cappy became an icon at the college.
O ur generous alumni, along with the college, completed an extensive renovation of the auditorium and the college proudly renamed and dedicated the auditorium in honor of the man with tremendous passion for music and Alfred State, Anthony C. Cappadonia.
