Lyrics as High Flying Literature
From Stevie Wonder to Bob Dylan and Carole King, from Cole Porter to Hamilton's Lin-Manuel Miranda, sometimes lyricists are so brilliant that their work becomes the word.  In a local temple of literacy, MUSE/IQUE brings LA's best musicians and vocalists together to explore how these word wizards transform letters into living, breathing art.  Rachael Worby leads a symphony of soaring sonnets and stanzas guaranteed to raise your spirits to the rafters.  This is one trip to the library where we won't be shushed!
