AMHERST, Mass. – The 2012-13 Music at Amherst Parallels Series continues with a performance by Inuit throat singer Tanya Tagaq on Friday, Mar. 8 at 8 p.m. in Buckley Recital Hall in the Arms Music Center at Amherst College. The performance requires tickets; seating is by general admission. Tickets may be reserved by calling 413/542-2195 or visiting

Inuit throat singer Tanya Tagaq's signature style emerges from the intersection of improvisation, tradition, passion and invention. Her mesmerizing work is abstract, evoking images from nature, and her power and skill have led to collaborations with pop icon Björk and the cutting-edge Kronos Quartet. Tanya Tagaq brings her trio to Amherst (Jesse Zubot, violin, and Jean Martin, percussion) for an evening of extraordinary and innovative music.

The box office for this performance opens on Feb. 25. Ticket prices are $18 for the general public, $12 for senior citizens and $10 for students. Amherst College students can request free student rush tickets at the door beginning at 7 p.m. on the evening of the performance.
