Concert: Saturday, October 8, 8 p.m. EDT
New Music New College opens our twenty-fourth season by presenting a new percussion quartet: Recap. These young and vital musicians will perform works written for them by some of the leading composers of our day, including Angélica Negrón and Lainie Fefferman. Catch these percussionists in our improvised Club Sudakoff, where we turn a normally bland campus space into a nightclub.

Recap is a new percussion quartet from a new generation of musicians dedicated to music reflecting the diverse society we live in today. Arlene Acevedo, Alexis Carter, Tiahna Sterling, and Aline Vasquez, four musicians from Rahway, NJ, form Recap through music, friendship and a desire to share their unique story. As recent alumni of Mantra Youth Percussion, the free-tuition teenage ensemble of Mantra Percussion, Inc., the members of Recap worked closely for several years with different music creators, performing both in their community as well as nationally, learning skills that would provide the groundwork for establishing their own group.
