RITMO/TOWN features renowned composer and pianist Alfredo Rodríguez, the incomparable Ballet Hispánico and singer/actress Paulette Ivory (Fela, The Lion King, Smokey Joe’s Cafe) as they team up with Rachael Worby and the MUSE/IQUE orchestra to follow the movement of history to uncover the unifying heartbeat between Latin rhythm and the Motown movement.
Saturday, July 22, at 7:30 p.m.
SOUL/TOWN continues the journey by connecting the legendary echoes of 1800s church gospel with the worldwide megaphone of 1960s Detroit, featuring Darlene Love and Rachael Worby and the MUSE/IQUE orchestra.
Saturday, Aug. 26, at 7:30 p.m.
GLOW/TOWN melds a dizzying array of genres — classical, jazz, tap, Motown and more! This evening will triumphantly celebrate the miracle of Motown realized in the spirit of American jazz. Rachael Worby’s unexpected cast of characters includes musical theater star Joshua Henry (Hamilton, Shuffle Along, and Porgy and Bess) and tap legend Savion Glover (Shuffle Along, Bring in Da Noise, Bring in Da Funk, Happy Feet). Inspired by the 100th birthdays of American legends Ella Fitzgerald, Dizzy Gillespie, Lena Horne, Desi Arnaz and Thelonious Monk, MUSE/IQUE’s orchestra and vibrant group of virtuosos will weave together a riveting finale to the Summer of Sound.
