Muse O’Fire, a collaborative work of poetry and music is coming to the NEIU Recital Hall at 3 p.m. on Oct. 16, 2012. Wordsmith Carolyn Aguila melds her own personal twist on poetic formalism with the accentuating melodies played by three acclaimed Chicago musicians; Steve Hashimoto, leader of the bands Mothra and Sueños, on bass; Aaron Koppel, leader of the Aaron Koppel Quartet, on guitar and Chicago Jazz festival regular Nils Higdon on percussion. Aguila, author of Flirting with Rhyme and Reason, is also an NEIU alumni.
