The Festival begins on Friday, September 16, at 7:30 pm in Loyola’s Roussel Hall, with a multi-media presentation of songs by Logan Skelton, with texts by Emily Dickinson. The music for this recital consists of two books of songs—An Intimate Nature (2005), and The Unknown Peninsula (2008)—composed by Logan Skelton and set to poetry by Emily Dickinson. The performance of the songs is combined with projected images timed to correlate with each moment in the texts. The recital seeks to bring the audience deep into the artistic world of Emily Dickinson.
