BARUCH COLLEGE–The Borough of Manhattan Community College held its inaugural student concert at the Perelman Performing Arts Center in Tribeca on Sept. 27.
BMCC students, families and curious onlookers watched 13 performances by 14 student and faculty musicians in the Music and Arts department. The setlist was a medley of contemporary covers and original songs spanning numerous genres such as R&B, bossa nova, jazz and country.
Program coordinator and associate professor Quentin Angus told the audience the college partnered with PAC NYC and held auditions to organize the concert.
“We’ve been talking to folks from PAC for years [so] we’re happy this is finally coming into fruition,” Angus said during an introductory speech.
