2017-2018 Season

We are delighted to present your month-by-month 2017-18 M@A Series lineup:

In September, Tel Aviv jazz clarinetist, saxophonist and bandleader Anat Cohen opens the Parallels Series with her quartet featuring Gary Versace, Joe Martin and Daniel Freedman. In October, a mother-son duo, violinist Miriam Fried and pianist Jonathan Biss, open the Chamber Series with music by Brahms, Bartók and Beethoven. In November, acclaimed pianist Angela Hewitt returns to Buckley with her Bach Odyssey project. And in December, the Tallis Scholars sing for you on a Sunday afternoon, celebrating composer Heinrich Isaac.

In January, you can look forward to the Juilliard String Quartet with its newest member, cellist Astrid Schween. In February, the International Contemporary Ensemble performs music for invisible places by Wojtek Blecharz. March brings Damien Sneed, piano, to replace Maarja Nuut Duo, canceled by the artist. And in April, the young wind quintet WindSync presents their mixed program, Voyager.
