ITHACA, NY — The Intergenerational Choir — composed of Ithaca College students and Longview residents — will perform its annual winter concert on Sunday, Dec. 7. Beginning at 6:45 p.m. in the Hockett Family Recital Hall in the James J. Whalen Center for Music, the free performance will feature a guest appearance by the Training Choir of the Ithaca Children’s Choir.
The concert will be a celebration in song of the 10th anniversary of the Ithaca College/Longview partnership, which has involved college staff, students, faculty and Longview residents with service learning projects, gerontology fieldwork, volunteer opportunities, and other initiatives. In a typical semester, two dozen faculty, between five and ten staff members, and approximately 300 students from 20 majors interact with well over 100 residents in 40 different activities at Longview.
One of those activities is the Intergenerational Choir, a cooperative choral ensemble composed of some 20 Ithaca College students and 20 to 25 Longview residents. In addition to singing together at Longview once a week, the choir also gives free, public concerts in the Whalen Center.
