Springfield College Introduces New Community Chorus
SPRINGFIELD — Springfield College will begin a community chorus this fall, led by Associate Professor of Music Alexandra Ludwig, that will give members of the greater Springfield community an opportunity to sing music of all genres in a fun, learning environment.
This new community chorus will foster community engagement between the college and local community, and especially invites singers who possess a love of music. Many genres of music will be represented such as Motown, jazz standards, classical, world beat, and Broadway. The chorus also will perform with piano, jazz band, instrumentals, or a cappella.
“Springfield College is very excited about our plans to create a new Springfield Community Chorus under the leadership of Professor Ludwig,” said Springfield College School of Arts, Sciences, and Professional Studies Dean Anne Herzog. “Prof. Ludwig is experienced with community music programs and will bring great energy and creativity to this new project. I look forward to the concerts that will result from her hard work.”
Rehearsals will take place on Tuesday evenings from 7 to 9, starting on Sept. 15 on the Springfield College campus. Singers 15 years of age and older who are interested in joining the chorus are asked to contact Ludwig at [email protected] or (413) 748-3463.
Ludwig maintains a varied musical career as a conductor, teacher, accompanist, and singer. Along with her work as a faculty member at the College, she is the conductor and artistic director of FluxEnsemble, and she has worked as a choral conductor for the Springfield College Singers, South Hadley Chorale, Hampshire Choral Society, and Pioneer Valley Symphony Chorus.
