Join us for an autumnal concert with the Red Skies Music Ensemble. This program illuminates the confluence of Dickinson’s engagements in home music-making with her sister Vinnie, and the lifetime botanical passion that helped form her personal soundscape. The concert bridges Dickinson's musical, poetic and natural worlds. Costumed musicians share rarely performed vocal and piano music from Dickinson's own collection of sheet music, as well as selections of the popular sentimental songs. At this program, the music will be played directly from the digitized version of the sheet music in Dickinson's own music book. Readings from correspondence illuminate and animate both the music and the musical relationship between the two sisters.
Tickets are available at the door-- $10 for general admission.
