Tonight, the William Simpson Fine Arts Series continues with the Annual Spring Concert, where various groups in the Visual and Performing Arts Department will perform a fun and light-hearted show.
Veronica Cirrincione, a sophomore, is a part of the Springfield College Singers.
“We all love to sing and I think that will easily convey to the audience in our upcoming performance,” said Cirrincione.
The show will include the SC Singers, SC Jazz Band, and High Strung, the strings ensemble here on campus. Each group has been practicing week in and week out for the final production, including senior and president, Danielle Krzemien.
“[Our] hard work will finally get to be shown to our audience, and we’re coming together to keep the arts alive at SC,” explained Krzemien. “[The arts are] an often forgotten, yet so critically important department on campus.”
The director of SC Singers, Alexandra Ludwig, chooses many of the songs that are sung at the concert, as well as teaching techniques for each singer to learn.
“Alex makes sure that we learn about music each time we have our club meetings, and she makes sure we have fun doing it,” said Cirrincione.
Each group has been practicing for a number of weeks, for hours a night. This year the SC Singers and SC Jazz Band are collaborating on a couple of pieces through songs like “Lean on Me,” by Bill Withers. It will also include some solo and duet pieces.
“This love for music is evident in all of the groups that will perform at the concert,” said Cirrincione, describing all of the respective groups on campus.
Although the Spring Concert marks an end of practicing for all of the groups on campus, the SC Singers will be singing in the Springfield Symphony Hall, alongside the Springfield Symphony Orchestra and Choir on May 3.
The Annual Spring Concert will take place in the Townhouse Conference Room, tonight, April 10, at 7:30.
