Regina Spektor ’01 Featured on Poetry in America

In this public television series, she joins the likes of Bill Clinton, Samantha Power, Bono, and YoYoMa in immersive interpretations of a single American poem.

Regina Spektor ’01 (studio composition) recites the poem “The New Colossus” by Emma Lazarus from memory in an episode that examines immigration in our current climate through the revered words found inscribed on the Statue of Liberty.
