Performance by InterArts Faculty at Poetry Foundation this Weekend

This weekend the Poetry Foundation presents a program of poems by William Blake, Bertolt Brecht, Walt Whitman, Lewis Carroll, William Butler Yeats, Anne Sexton, and Violetta Parra set to music by a number of musical performers, including Chicago-based group The Crooked Mouth. InterArts faculty member Jenny Magnus (pictured at the center) keeps the beat for The Crooked Mouth, a group that creates original music grounded in their roots in vaudeville, working with instruments ranging from drums, guitar, ukulele, banjo, accordion, piano, and vocals.

The hour-long performances, which are free and open to the public, will be at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 22 and 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, September 23. The Poetry Foundation is located at 61 West Superior Street in Chicago.
