Your Music at Amherst Series is delighted to announce the 2023–2024 season’s compelling lineup, bringing fresh and awe-inspiring live performances to Buckley Recital Hall. We are honored to present a full season of M@A events, and more mindful than ever that meeting in person is a treasured experience we can all cherish.
The season begins on Oct. 27, the distinctive artistry of internationally acclaimed pianist Simone Dinnerstein returns to Amherst College, as Dinnerstein presents a program of Couperin, Schumann, Glass and Schubert. And, as the first semester draws to a close, we can’t wait to welcome back the poetic Parker Quartet to Buckley Recital Hall on Dec. 1, to perform their program titled HOMELAND with works by Haydn, Silvestrov, Dennehy and Beethoven.
After the winter break, M@A returns on Feb. 9 with a recital by the luminous mezzo-soprano Raehann Bryce-Davis, whose glorious voice will fill the hall with songs that range from Wagner to Florence Price, followed on March 1 by a performance by the band Social Science, led by Grammy Award-winning visionary jazz artist and drummer Terri Lyne Carrington, who is the founder and artistic director of the Berklee Institute of Jazz and Gender Justice. In April, we have the long-awaited opportunity to hear international sensation violinist Ray Chen present a recital of Vitali, Bach, Beethoven, Saint-Saëns and Franck on April 19. And last, but not least, on May 3 enjoy a performance by composer, pianist/vocalist and interdisciplinary artist Samora Pinderhughes. Known for his fierce commitment to the fight for liberation, his work delves into all the things our society often obscures: its history, its structures, and the personal and quotidian things we all experience but perhaps just don’t know how to talk about. If you have not yet heard his sweet voice, it will make your heart sing.
And all this, for you, at your doorstep! Subscribers, new and returning, your seats are waiting for you. Subscription sales begin Aug. 22 via our ticketing website, where single tickets also go on sale 14 days before each performance. Please don’t hesitate to call the Concert Office line at (413) 542–2195 if you have any questions or if we can help in any way.
We can’t wait to see you, who put the live in live music! Dust off your going-out clothes, bring along your favorite person and treat yourself to some very special evenings. The community gem that is Buckley Recital Hall awaits. It’s your very own cozy connection to the sparkling musical world that extends beyond this lovely corner of the Valley.
