Celebrate Emily Dickinson's 183rd birthday with Peter Gizzi (Threshold Songs), a poet who has been called Dickinson's modern-day heir. Gizzi will be discussing the great American poet's legacy, in addition to reading from his own work. Hovering between grief and joy, the abstract and the concrete, Gizzi's poetry explores the hardships and pleasures in life. A former poetry editor for The Nation, Gizzi has garnered numerous awards and fellowships, and has taught at Brown and the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. Learn More

With soprano Ann Monoyios and guest instrumentalists Mary Springfels and Tom Zajac.
Islamic, Jewish, and Christian traditions peacefully co-existed in the 13th-century court of Alfonso the Wise, creating one of the most fascinating episodes in Spanish history. Works from Alfonso's famous Cantigas de Santa Maria are paired with works from 14th-century French-ruled Cyprus, including sophisticated ballades, dance songs, and avant-garde rondeaux. Rounding out the program are instrumental works for fiddles, citoles, harp, winds, and bagpipes.
Robert Aubry Davis, seen on WETA's Around Town and heard on XM Radio's opera and classical vocal music channel, leads a lively pre-concert discussion with the performers on Friday, March 13 at 7pm in the Elizabethean Theatre.
