Since leaving my position as violist of the Attacca Quartet, I became the artistic director of both the Manhattan Chamber Players [pictured] and the mission- and outreach-driven Crescent City Chamber Music Festival in New Orleans, my hometown.

Jasmine Batchelor

I'm in Miss 2059, a futuristic beauty-pageant TV show that started this summer and can be seen on Mondays on Verizon's go90. I was also featured in the first episode of the third season of The Affair, on Showtime. And my big news is that I started a podcast called A Woke in the Morning—you can get it on iTunes!

Samora Pinderhughes

In between touring—with artists including Christian Scott, Emily King, and Branford Marsalis—I'm working on my own projects and collaborating with as many cool people as possible, including my sister Elena (also a musician) and scoring films as a fellow in the Sundance Composers Lab. I'm a core member of Blackout for Human Rights, a collective of artists committed to addressing human rights violations especially against people of color; and was the music director for our #JusticeForFlint event. And my album The Transformations Suite, the culmination of a project I started with friends sophomore year, comes out October 12.

Andrew Arceci

After Juilliard, I read for a master of studies at Oxford University's Magdalen College. Now I work as a performer (viola da gamba, violone, and double bass) and composer/arranger, and I direct Wellesley College's Collegium Musicum ensemble. I'm also the founder-director of the Winchendon (Mass.) Music Festival—this past June, we offered baroque, folk/world, and jazz programs.

Taylor Drury

I've been performing full-time with Punchdrunk's immersive production Sleep No More in N.Y.C. since February 2015, and I've continued my own choreographic explorations, producing my first evening-length dance-theater piece, No Milk, at Irondale Theatre earlier this year. Looking forward to sharing Roberta, a piece I created senior year, at BAM Fisher in March!
