Background

All human beings deserve the opportunity to have their imaginations and understanding expanded through active engagement with inspired live music. MUSE/IQUE pioneers new musical experiences for people by creating curated live music events and outreach programs, all aimed at inspiring the creative spirit, engaging the community imagination, and fostering new generations of music lovers.  MUSE/IQUE is a member-supported, nonprofit performing arts organization making radically engaging live music experiences accessible for all. Built on a tradition of community and collaboration, we create events that feature an eclectic mix of artists and artistic disciplines in unconventional locations. MUSE/IQUE was founded to upend the misconception that live orchestral music and performing arts are elitist, unapproachable, and, frankly, dull! Our mission is to build empathy and expand imaginations through transformative live events and strong partnerships in Pasadena and the greater Los Angeles area.
