Curated and Conducted by Rachael Worby, Artistic Director
Before we wrote, we sang to tell our stories.
You know those songs that are so powerful they open your heart like a book?
We do, too! We love them!
And we revere master storytellers like Bob Dylan, Ray Charles, Joni Mitchell, Paul Simon, Michael Jackson, Billy Joel, Franz Schubert, Charles Aznavour, and many more!
There is something wildly joyful about music that tells a story - and only Rachael Worby and her artists can give you the beginning, middle, and end of songs the MUSE/IQUE way!
With a spirited team of singers and musicians, Rachael will unfold the special art of storytelling through all-time favorite hits like “Hit the Road Jack,” “Piano Man,” and “Billie Jean.”
