Rachael Worby is that rare conductor who is also a curator and a skilled communicator. Her dynamic energy, coupled with the highly successful results she has achieved with diverse organizations has created a demand for her skills worldwide. As a guest conductor, she has led orchestras throughout Europe, South America, Australia, and Asia.
MUSE/IQUE underscores Worby’s reputation as a musical visionary and fulfills her dream of re-creating a concert experience for 21st century audiences. MUSE/IQUE is the latest and boldest venture in Los Angeles’ live performance landscape. It partners with organizations in Los Angeles to transform interesting places and outdoor spaces into welcoming destinations where the power of live music brings people together and invigorates community life. The nonprofit organization exists to strengthen the social fabric of the city through live music.
The Pasadena, California-based ensemble, which debuted in 2011, encourages and supports local artists and connects them to the community, MUSE/IQUE is designed as both an alternative to the traditional classical concert experience and a vehicle for musical education and outreach that touches, excites and inspires the younger generation. Mixing culture with whimsy, the casual with the unexpected, MUSE/IQUE shakes the cobwebs off of classical concert going.
