A Selective Guide to the Arts in Los Angeles

MUSE/IQUE, known for its inspired, unexpected live music events curated by Artistic Director/Conductor Rachael Worby, launches its 2013-14 season with “Free for All,” a free family-friendly concert in which hip-hop, jazz and orchestral music collide in a rocking dance party on Friday, Oct. 11, from 6 to 9 p.m., on the plaza of the Pasadena Civic Center.

The annual event will feature members of the MUSE/IQUE Orchestra and the jazz-focused Double G NineNet, comprised of members of the daKAH Hip Hop Orchestra, led by Double G (Geoff Gallegos). Adding to the lively musical mix of hip-hop, Beatles tunes, jazz and more will be a crew of dancers, as well as face painting and other special activities for children.

The concert is being held in conjunction with Pasadena’s ArtNight, a free celebration of art, music and entertainment at numerous venues throughout the city.

Reservations for “Free for All” are not necessary. The Pasadena Civic Center Plaza is located at 300 E. Green St., Pasadena 91101. For more information about MUSE/IQUE, call (626) 539-7085 or visit www.muse-ique.com. For more information about ArtNight, visit www.artnightpasadena.org/.
