Mandolin Orchestra Concert

The Mandolin Orchestra of Western Mass is the first of its kind in over 100 years. Around the end of the 19th century, there were literally dozens of mandolin orchestras all over Massachusetts and New England. Every College and University had one, notably orchestras at Smith College, Amherst College and Mt Holyoke College. That all changed with the dawning of the 20th Century.

We are an ensemble consisting of 5-25 classically-trained musicians, many of us are students, studying the music of 15th - 19th Century Europe! Performances include works by modern Massachusetts composers and may include musicians from Rhode Island's L'Esperance Mandolin Ensemble and Northampton's Mandolin Paradiso. Join us for a fun concert and learn a little about the history of mandolins in Western Massachusetts!

Free & open to the public.

Science Cafe

Science Café presents – Gut feeling: fostering a diverse and healthy microbiome, with Dr. Jeffrey Blanchard

Have you ever considered that there are millions of tiny creatures living inside of you? The bacteria within the human gut outnumber our own cells ten to one! These bacteria can determine how much of your food you store as fat, whether you develop harmful plaque in your arteries, and even what time of day you might feel tired. Technology has made it possible to study these microorganisms and to develop new treatments for diseases such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Crohn's Disease. This cafe will explore the diversity of human and animal gut bacteria, and how our lifestyle simultaneously influences and is influenced by our gut bacteria.

All Science Café events are free and open to the public. Want to learn something new? Come join us!

Morning Matinee 11/10/15 at 10 (open to schools, youth organizations, adult learning groups, educational outings, etc. Study guides and post-show Q&A are free for Morning Matinee patrons.)

“I was built to be this thing; and now they’re killing me for it.” In Adjmi’s poetic modern text, Marie is imagined as a celebrity at once celebrated and scorned for her excesses, simultaneously a trapped girl and a vapid power-broker. She is watched at all moments, and we eat it up-and then we eat her up.

Love and Information
Love and Information by Caryl Churchill.

Directed by Nikoo Mamdoohi
2/25/16 Half-Price Preview at 7:30

In acquiring the gadgets we use to connect, have we lost the reason for our communication: how to share our feelings, care for others, and love? Love and Information prompts us to see ourselves, our lives, our concerns, and all our longings in surprising new ways. Churchill’s dazzling language draws us into brief encounters with a series of characters, until the story that emerges is not about individuals, but about humanity and connection.

Donny Johns, a new musical by Harley Erdman, Aaron Jones and Gina Kaufmann.

Directed by Gina Kaufmann, Musical Direction by Mark Swanson
Curtain Theater

How does Don Juan’s notorious modus operandi fare when it’s deployed on a contemporary college campus? Darkly comic and set to a propulsive rock beat, the new musical Donny Johns explores the legend from the perspective of the women targeted for seduction. This story, developed here at UMass Amherst, digs irreverently into issues of consent, sex, love, and romance, examining the consequences, good and bad, of hook-up culture and shifting sexual mores.
