W&L Alumna Records with Porterfield Rose
Lovancy Ingram, a 2001 alumna, is part of a relatively new instrumental group called Porterfield Rose, which was formed in late 2008 and has just released its first CD, Echoes of Rose. A journalism and mass communications major who lives in Washington, D.C., Lovancy served as assistant concertmaster for the University Shenandoah Symphony Orchestra. Porterfield Rose performs jazz/pop instrumentals. In addition to Lovancy’s violin, Porterfield Rose features clarinet, saxophone, piano, bass and guitar. What’s pretty cool about this group is that the clarinetist is Lovancy’s father, Vedoster “Spike” Ingram. You can read more about the group and sample its music on its Facebook fan page. You can also order or download the album from the CDBaby Web site.
