Clio / Press

“Clio, Cymbal and Bread & Roses, three local musical groups sang songs of peace. "The first [song we performed], ‘Holy War,' was written by Taylor Atkins; he's a history professor," said Eric Jones, a member of Clio and an assistant professor of history at NIU. "He wrote that song and it comes out of this question of how these people of various faiths can commit acts of war in the name of their prophets when their prophets speak out against that. It was a fitting 9/11 memorial song."”
