Chicago poets and musicians present an evening in the arts. Ari Brown, a composer, arranger, and educator who has played with Chuck Berry, B.B. King, and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, provides music inspired by the poetry of Christina Pugh and Ed Roberson. Pianist Mabel Kwan connects the words of Reginald Gibbons and Rachel Jamison Webster to her contemporary and exploratory music background.
