Masterful musicians & unexpected mash-ups. Inspired venues & passionate players. Magical evenings & adventures in sound.  MUSE/IQUE is a professional, counter-conventional orchestra in Pasadena.

From our Summer of Sound festival of music and imagination at Caltech’s Beckman Mall Lawn to our signature series of “pop-up” events in the Fall through Spring, the Uncorked Series, MUSE/IQUE’s live music events bring together musicians and vocalists from all manner of genres in exciting “mash-ups” that defy classification.  Uninhibited connections are forged between the artists, audiences, and unique spaces we inhabit as our stages. Among the improvised spaces, MUSE/IQUE has performed include the Avon Distribution Center, Jacob Maarse, Castle Press, The Rose Palace, and many more.

Maestra Rachael Worby is the visionary force behind an energetic gathering of great artists – a deconstructed orchestra made up of virtuoso musicians, dynamic artists, and risk-taking creators: Savion Glover, Nnenna Freelon, Jessye Norman, Flea, Patti Austin, Rickie Lee Jones, Charlie Haden, Arturo Sandoval, Mary Wilson, Mike Simpson, Mona Tavakoli, Matt Haimovitz, and many more.
