Welcome to the M@A Soundtrack!

Dear Music at Amherst patrons and listeners: 

As our Series concerts pick up speed for the 2014-2015 season, the concert office wished to find a way to share the sound of the Series with you beyond Buckley. Therefore for your listening pleasure we've put together a playlist of the pieces featured in our Chamber Series, performed by artists available through the free music sharing platform, Spotify, and another playlist of our Parallels artists performing pieces from their respective discographies.
