Dickinson After 2000

Through music written after 2000, these GRAMMY award-winning artists explore the poetry of Emily Dickinson with a modern lens. This 85-minute, non-stop program shatters the 4th wall and invites you right into Emily's living room, into a conversation through her enlightened, paradoxical, and fanatically truth-seeking words.
