Alvirne singers inspired by Grammy winner's visit
Peter Eldridge has written songs for the likes of Stevie Wonder and Paul Simon, has released four solo albums, performed at Carnegie Hall and is a co-founding member of the double-Grammy winning group New York Voices.
During his visit in Hudson Friday, Eldridge worked closely with the local students during a 90-minute music clinic, where he offered up professional advice at a time when students could really use it.
Auditions are on Oct. 26 and as that date gets closer, it can be downright nerve-wracking.
"When in doubt, sing it in French," he joked with the teens.
For senior Rachelle Choiniere, it felt like a possible glimpse into the future.
"Wherever I go, I hope I always end up singing in my lifetime," she said. "This experience has definitely been encouraging."
"This is a group that really supports one another," he said.
The Walpole resident said some of the best parts of teaching his craft are the moments when a student has what he refers to as an "a-ha" moment.
