CONDUCTOR RACHAEL WORBY FORMS MUSE/IQUE
Fresh from resigning from the Pasadena Pops, where she was conductor for a number of years, Rachael's dream came true of having her own orchestra and being able to pick her own musicians and program what she wants. Rachael's specialty is "mashing up" all kinds of art forms and leading you on a thrilling musical journey--both passionately and intellectually. An example of this was her announcement party for the orchestra where she combined and Bach cello solo with a beautifully sculpted male dancer from the Lula Washington Company. HER DEBUT CONCERT IS JULY 30TH STARRING JESSYE NORMAN doing Duke Ellington, classics, and spirituals at the magnificent lawn in front of the Beckmen Auditorium at Cal Tech in Pasadena. Muse/ique is in the process of firming up fall concerts and will announce soon.
