About Recap Quartet

Recap is a 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, performing both in their community as well as nationally.

Now as a professional ensemble, Recap released their debut album “Count to Five” on Innova Recordings in 2021 with premiere recordings of music by Angelica Negron, Allison Loggins-Hull, Ellen Reid, Lesley Flanigan, Mary Kouyoumdjian, and Caroline Shaw. Their album is featured on both NPR’s Top 10 Classical Albums of the Year (2021) as well as NPR’s Top 100 Songs of the Year for their performance of Lesley Flanigan’s “Hedera.”
