      Class Acts Arts' Kaleidoscope Family Performance Series concludes its
      2004-2005 season with a performance by the popular a cappella group
      Almost Recess. The five talented singers, ages twenty-something, who
      make up Almost Recess come from Maine, New York, Connecticut,
      California and Virginia, are from very diverse musical backgrounds,
      ranging from jazz drumming to trombone to piano. What unites them is
      their love of singing and their enthusiasm for sharing the a cappella
      art form with audiences of all ages.

      Most astounding to audiences hearing contemporary a cappella
      renditions of popular music for the first time -- is the percussive
      vocalist. If you close your eyes you would swear there must be a
      drum set on stage. You'll also hear convincing imitations of
      trombone, trumpet, and more.

      Dave Baumgartner, Beji Scarbeary, Brian Agosta, Nate Pipke, and Ryan
      Driver make up Almost Recess. Their songs are delivered with
      impeccable timbre, effectively imitating a band using only their
      voices. The group's musical tastes and styles vary widely, and are
      reflected in the Swing to Motown to Hard Rock songs they perform.
      Each member of Almost Recess sang with an a cappella group in
      college, and since graduating have made it a priority to teach youth
      the importance of developing a musical foundation at a young age,
      demonstrating the endless creative possibilities and pleasures
      derived from the oldest instrument known to mankind: the human voice.

      The performance takes place at the NOAA Auditorium, 1301 East West
      Highway (Rt.410), Silver Spring, Maryland. Audience members should
      arrive early due to security procedures.

      Plenty of free parking is available at the second public parking
      garage east of Colesville Road on East-West Highway. The theater is
      two blocks from the Silver Spring metro on the red line.

      Seating is limited, advance purchase recommended. All seats are
      general admission.
