The Alfred State Choir Alumni organization will present its 66th annual spring concert at 2 p.m. Sunday, April 23 in the Anthony C. Cappadonia Auditorium in the Orvis Activities Center on the Alfred campus.
Groups performing will include the Alumni Jazz Singers, AAA (Anthony’s Acappella Alliance), and the Alumni Choir. The alumni will be joined by the Alfred State’s own vocal music program, “Voices.” The concert is free and open to the public.
The 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.
