Alfred State will present its 65th annual Alumni Choral Spring Concert at 2 p.m. Sunday, April 24 in the Anthony C. Cappadonia Auditorium in the Orvis Activities Center on the Alfred campus.
Groups performing will include the Alumni Jazz Singers, ’87 Collegiate Quartet, AAA (Anthony’s A cappella Alliance) and the Alumni Choir. The concert is free and open to the public.
The Alfred State Concert Choir Alumni organization was founded in 1957 and consists of alumni who performed under the direction of Anthony C. Cappadonia, during his 56-year tenure as both instrumental and choral director at Alfred State. On April 29, 2012, the Anthony C. Cappadonia Auditorium was officially dedicated. It will forever be a testament to the musical inspiration Cappadonia provided to his students.
He continued to direct the alumni groups until his passing in February 2014. Alumni from all over the country return to campus to perform this annual concert in his honor.
