We’d like to introduce you to Ron Sorgman, a vocalist, guitarist, teacher, and avid supporter of the arts whose passion for the craft extends from coast to coast.

A Boston native, an architect by trade, and a musician at heart, Sorgman began his journey in music in the late 1950’s with an all-vocal group called The Interludes, singing throughout the Greater Boston Area until they disbanded in 1968. The group reunited again in 1985 and resumed their travels, reaching venues from Hampton Beach to Daytona Beach, from Hyannis to Bermuda. As performers on 8-day cruises, Sorgman and The Interludes had the pleasure of singing alongside other famed groups such as the Shirelles, the Ink Spots, the Jive 5, and many others.

Sorgman’s career took him to Santa Barbara, California, and his involvement in the arts continued. Alongside a Doo-Wop singing program there, Sorgman was active with projects like Visual Arts in Public Places (VAPP), an organization that helps oversee the curation of city galleries; the Santa Barbara Bowl Foundation, an initiative that strives to create the leading outdoor performing arts venue; and Kids Draw Architecture, a program that enriched the community’s awareness of the built environment; just to name a few.

Sorgman moved back to the Bay State in 2016. He is a board member for our own Armory Project as well as the River’s Edge Arts Alliance. Since moving to Hudson, Sorgman has reconnected with his partner--a fellow Interludes singer and friend since he was just fifteen years old--and began performing again as a vocal duo. Pre-pandemic, they’ve performed for senior centers and fundraising events locally, and hope to resume soon.

“I am very interested in making this new performing arts center into a reality,” Sorgman says of the Hudson Armory Project, “This venue would boost the exposure to the arts and create opportunities for all types of artists. The economic impact to the town would be an asset that everyone in this region could enjoy.

”We hope you’ll take a moment to appreciate some of Ron Sorgman’s music on the left, and encourage you to catch one of his next performances.

Until the next update, stay safe and connected, and be sure to support your local restaurants and businesses.

Create yours,
The Hudson Armory Project
