MUSICAL PRESENTATION: The SUNY Geneseo Limelight & Accents Series will present Ethos Percussion with the Lark Quartet at 8 p.m. in Wadsworth Auditorium.  For more than fifteen years, Ethos Percussion Group has inspired audiences throughout the country with its exceptional music-making and innovative programming, which integrates global instruments and playing styles into the conventions of Western chamber music to create a visually and aurally compelling experience. For this performance, Ethos Percussion will be joined by the Lark Quartet.  On the surface, the Lark Quartet appears to be a typical chamber ensemble but once they begin playing, you'll soon realize they are an "edgy" ensemble that blurs the boundaries between concert and pop fare.  Tickets are $5 for students, $7 for 12 and under, $12 for faculty/staff/alumni, and $15 for the general public.  To purchase tickets, call the Student Association Ticket Office at (585) 245-5873 or (800) 525-2070.
