Built on a tradition of community and collaboration, MUSE/IQUE, led by Artistic Director Rachael Worby, creates accessible live music experiences that feature an eclectic mix of artists and artistic disciplines in spaces where art typically does not happen. As a member-supported, non-profit performing arts organization, MUSE/IQUE’s mission is to build empathy and expand imaginations through transformative live events and strong partnerships with fellow nonprofit organizationsin Pasadena and the greater Los Angeles area.
Join us LIVE in person next week for Etta At Last! All we ever needed to make our lives whole was the voice of Etta James. Born in Los Angeles in 1938, her storied career came to symbolize the multi-layered creative innovations of our city. She made the world's best musicians—from Elvis to B.B. King to Chuck Berry—even better. And with her vocal magic, she masterfully blended the best of the American sound—from blues, R&B, and soul to rock, jazz, and gospel. In this life-affirming performance, we explore Etta's influences (from Billie Holiday to gospel and beyond), celebrate our favorite Etta songs—including one never released!—and relive her most famous collaborations.
