The 442s will perform a free concert at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 26, in the Schmidt Art Center. The 442s are a genre-defying acoustic quartet named for the modern standard tuning of 442 Hz. The group combines outstanding musicianship, group singing and inventive improvisation, all while breaking down barriers between jazz, classical, folk and pop music. The SWIC Music department and College Activities are sponsoring the concert.
