MUSE/IQUE's Outdoor Summer of Sound Festival Launches with Patti Austin.
MUSE/IQUE, known for its counter-conventional performances that feel more like parties than formal concerts, launches “Summer of Sound” 2013 with “Lost in the Stars with Patti Austin,” featuring the Grammy Award-winning legend, on Saturday, June 29, 2013, 7:30 pm, outdoors at Caltech’s Beckman Mall in Pasadena. Austin joins MUSE/IQUE Artistic Director Rachael Worby, who conducts the MUSE/IQUE Orchestra in a musical mash up of works by Brubeck, Beatles, Ellington, Weill, Paganini and more. Also spotlighted is critically acclaimed Concertmaster Robert Wilke. Gates open at 5:30 pm for dinner (ordered in advance) or bring-your-own picnics, with table and bleacher seating and plentiful free parking.
