The Emily Dickinson Museum is pleased to present Some Favored Nook, a song cycle by Eric Nathan inspired by the significant correspondence between Emily Dickinson and Thomas Wentworth Higginson. Nathan’s original composition places Dickinson and Higginson’s writings at the center of the music, using these pivotal texts as a lens through which to view the social, political and cultural issues of this chapter in American history. Filled with themes of abolition, civil rights, women’s rights, the effects of war, love, and death, the song cycle will feature performances by soprano Tony Arnold, baritone William Sharp and pianist Molly Morkoski.
