M@A: A Virtual Season Presents Regina Carter and Friends

Regina Carter and Friends open the Music@Amherst 2020-2021 Virtual Series with a live, online performance hosted by Professor Darryl Harper. This performance is free and open to the public. Please visit the music department's event livestream page, listed below, to catch the show. We look forward to seeing you!

For Grammy-nominated artist Regina Carter, the violin isn't simply an improvisational vehicle; it’s a Rosetta Stone that unlocks the doors to a myriad of cultures, sounds and worlds apart. The first jazz musician and African-American to play the Guarneri Del Gesu violin, once owned by Niccolò Paganini, MacArthur “Genius” award-winning Regina Carter is director of the New Jersey Performing Arts Center’s All-Female Jazz Residency and has collaborated with artists including Aretha Franklin, Mary J. Blige, Lauryn Hill, Billy Joel, Dolly Parton, Ray Brown, Kenny Barron, the String Trio of New York, Cassandra Wilson, Oliver Lake and Steve Turre.

Your safety is our highest concern. We have therefore temporarily suspended M@A subscriptions for this season until it is again safe to gather in Buckley in person. Thank you for your understanding.
