Poetry Contest
Tactus is proud to announce our second Poetry Contest for this concert set! Submissions are due July 22nd. Click here for contest submission instructions.

Join us for our final concert with our founding director Tanmoy Laskar, as we take you on a journey through mountain roads by the soft light of the August moon to grassy shores dotted with fiery aspens in bloom. Come with us on our adventures by sea through calm and storm, past vociferous volcanoes and craggy castles, and explore bustling spice-laden markets and freshly-bloomed gardens. As our paths take some of us far abroad, join us in songs of deep longing and fond remembrance for those they leave behind; until such time as we return once more, for more adventures are yet in store!
