A look into the everyday life of Emily Dickinson

In today’s world of cell phones, laptops and cable television, it’s sometimes easy to forget Amherst’s past. Certainly, the Pioneer Valley remains an area dominated by a rural, agrarian lifestyle. A five-minute drive down Route 9 is all that’s needed to remind the 21st century college student that Amherst and the surrounding towns are – and have always been – made up of farmland.

Jerome Charyn’s novel “The Secret Life of Emily Dickinson” serves not only to offer a hypothetical look at one of Amherst’s most mysterious celebrities, but also to give readers a sometimes entertaining, sometimes sobering window into Amherst’s 19th century past.

“Fab” Beatles cover band plays Mullins Center

On any list of the most famous and successful musical performers of the 20th century, the Beatles undoubtedly make an appearance near (if not at) the top. While many popular rock bands have cover bands to celebrate their legacy, very few can claim a cover band as professional and authentic as Rain.

A tribute concert to The Beatles

A top-notch musical quartet and a living historical tribute combined, RAIN is one of the most critically acclaimed Beatles cover bands.
