Blink Your Eyes: Poets to Music
 at the Clark Studio Theater / Performances
 Lincoln Center Institute for the Arts in Education
 In-school performances
A music and spoken word program curated specifically for middle, high school, and college students led by musical director JT Lewis and poetry director Tracie Morris with the Black Rock Coalition Orchestra. The multifaceted production, dedicated to and performed in honor of Sekou Sundiata, explores the thin line between poetry and lyrics, and the million questions along that line. How are the two forms different? In what ways are they the same? Do musicians work differently with poets than they do with lyricists? What’s the difference between spoken word and rhyming? Does music change a poem? Can poetry change music?
