 WE REGRET TO ANNOUNCE THAT ALL REMAINING CONCERTS FOR THIS ACADEMIC YEAR (to have included Saturday April 18 & Friday May 1) HAVE BEEN CANCELLED.  PLEASE CHECK OUR WEBSITE AGAIN IN MAY FOR A LISTING OF OUR EXCITING SEASON FOR 2020-2021 which will celebrate the 250th birthday of Beethoven, the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, and the Amherst College Bicentennial!

FURTHER APOLOGIES TO THOSE COMMUNITY MEMBERS WHO ATTEMPTED TO ATTEND OUR STRAVINSKY CONCERT on Saturday March 7 but were denied admission due to the very last minute announcement by our College (less than 24 hours before the concert itself) that all public events effective immediately were to be limited to Amherst College faculty, staff, employees and students only.  We hope to see you again next "season" as we kick off our year in late September, 2020.
