The Musical Parlor of Emily Dickinson


Presented by Music Division Chief George Boziwick and the Red Skies Music Ensemble, this program recreates the intimate setting of music-making in the Dickinson home.  A selection of popular ballads, minstrel tunes, and Irish dance music from Emily’s own music book illustrates in performance, pictures, and commentary how the Dickinson's collected, listened to, and performed the music of their time.
