Alfred State “Voices”, the chorus portion of the performing arts on campus, is starting up the new semester. Plans include concerts with the Jazz Band in March at the Wellsville Public Library, Cultural Showcase, Spring Concert with the band on Friday, April 27 and the Alumni Chorus Weekend Concert on Sunday, April 29. By the way, this will be the concert at which the auditorium will be dedicated to Anthony Cappadonia so it will be a big event for the local community-hopefully for you too.
Last semester we sponsored a film, “Sweeney Todd, Demon Barber of Fleet Street” with Late Night and plan to share another film this semester as well. It was quite well attended and I was very pleased to see the response!
We are also working on the Chorus to Chorus Project. This is designed to raise funds to replace the choral music lost during the flood at the MacArthur Elementary School in Binghamton last fall. The district decided not to replace any of the music even though they lost nearly 30 years worth of music. In addition to buying music for the chorus, we also will compose a song to give to the kids–something special and unique for Voices to do.
Come join us and be part of a new group on campus! Contact Nicole Binns at BinnsN@alfred-state.edu or Linda Staiger at Staigel@alfredstate.edu.
