World-class music comes to NAC

Baker, who saw Vacca in concert two years ago in Potsdam with a small group of students, said the performance is something different for people in the area to see.

"You don't get that chance very often," he said. "He brings in these world-class musicians from Senegal, West Africa. How often do you get to see Senegalese dancing along with rhythm instruments performing a dance ensemble from West Africa? It's just something I don't think a lot of people would get to see otherwise."

Although the concert, which will begin at 7 p.m., is free to the public, Baker said he feels the event is a fundraiser for the arts department, and he's hoping people will leave donations.

"There seem to be a lot of people that showed interest in the last concert," said Baker. "I guess I would make an appeal to those people and say if they want to see more concerts like that in the future, please come and support the arts department at NAC."

"I would like to bring more events like this to our community so people can enjoy it," he added.
