This concert is a study in iconoclasts. Emily Dickinson bucked tradition with the unconventional syntax, clipped lines, and slant rhyme of her poems. Charles Ives, too, had no use for orthodoxy; his musical language experimented with innovations not seen again for decades. Hear his, and other settings of Dickinson’s works, while you explore the musical and poetic language of those who were unafraid to break the mold. 

Admission is free, but tickets are required.
