New Members

During the off-months, we bid farewell to members Ben Harbert and Alexander Sack. Ben is now teaching at Georgetown University and Alex is continuing to pursue his solo career in fine arts guitar. We owe many of our accomplishments to their endless contributions and we wish them the best of luck in their endeavors.

With two open positions to fill, we spent the majority of the fall auditioning replacements and restructuring the group. It was an arduous task, but in the end, we are thrilled with the results.

Joining us on bass and tap guitar is Kai Kurosawa. Born in Japan, Kai is a master in the tapping technique. His unique sound provides a fresh perspective on the octet's seasoned repertoire. Joining us on electric guitar is Hugo Aguayo. A native of the Bay Area, Hugo is well-versed in many genres. His expertise in Spanish flamenco is a welcome addition to our arsenal of sound. We are fortunate to have them both.
