In Fall 2021, NEXUS Chamber Music commissioned the celebrated composer Augusta Read Thomas to write a work for soprano and string quartet based upon poems by Emily Dickinson. The resulting work entitled "Upon Wings of Words" was premiered at the Ravinia Festival and recorded at Guarneri Hall for Nimbus Records in 2022 by NEXUS Artists Kristina Bachrach, Benjamin Baker, and Jordan Bak alongside Co-Artistic Directors Alexander Hersh and Brian Hong.
