MUSE/IQUE, the Pasadena-based performing arts organization led by Founder and Artistic Director Rachael Worby, continues its 2021-22 season, L.A. Composed: A Festival of Los Angeles Music, with “Dylan Goes Hollywood” at The Huntington Library, Art Museum and Botanical Gardens, August 18 & 19, and the Skirball Cultural Center, August 22, 2021.
From “Tambourine Man” to “Knockin on Heaven’s Door,” Bob Dylan’s music and lyrics evoke powerful images and stories in our minds like no other songwriter in history. Dylan’s music has been featured hundreds of times in movies and paired with some of the most powerful and striking moments on screen, and he found himself drawn to the City of Angels time and time again. In this performance, MUSE/IQUE explores Bob Dylan on the west coast and his quintessentially cinematic songs through the Hollywood lens.
MUSE/IQUE’s signature events unite artists from varied genres and styles to create a musical tapestry around a central theme or idea. “Dylan Goes Hollywood” welcomes to the MUSE/IQUE stage Charles Yang, vocals/violin, Wendie Malick, spoken word, Elissa Johnston, vocals, Kaveh Rastegar, bass/arrangements, Jamey Tate, drums, Tim Young, guitar, Peter Adams, piano, Damon Zick, clarinet, Kitty McNamee and Hysterica Collective, dancers, LAVA (Los Angeles Vocal Choir), Jeffrey Bernstein, Music Director
Over the past decade, MUSE/IQUE has curated and presented unexpected live music adventures that shake loose the customs, norms and barriers of the traditional concert-going experience. MUSE/IQUE has never had a formal concert hall – the city is the venue – and no set genres or styles of performance are emphasized. Instead, cross-genre, multidisciplinary performances are placed in iconic community locales. Doors 6:30 p.m. Music 7:30 p.m. More info at Muse-ique.com
