Union Station Homeless Services and MUSE/IQUE are teaming up yet again for a genre-bending evening of entertainment for a great cause.
The 15th annual An Evening for the Station benefit concert will feature a Beatles/Bash by MUSE/IQUE, the “counter conventional” orchestra. The event will be held on October 29 at 6 p.m., at Noor in Pasadena.
“This collaboration is an opportunity to deepen MUSE/IQUE’s civic and artistic missions,” says Rachael Worby. “Union Station makes all of our lives better. Their fierce advocacy on behalf of every soul in our city is deeply moving, and it is an honor to participate in a fundraising effort for this extraordinary cause.”
All proceeds from the 15th annual An Evening for the Station will support Union Station Homeless Services, the San Gabriel Valley’s largest and most comprehensive social service agency assisting homeless men, women and children.
Maestra Rachael Worby is the visionary force behind MUSE/IQUE, a deconstructed orchestra made up of virtuoso musicians, artists, creators, and stellar guests the likes of Flea, Patti Austin, Charlie Haden, Arturo Sandoval, Angela Bassett, and many more.
“When Rabbi Marv Gross asked us to explore the brilliance of the Beatles for this celebration, we couldn’t wait to dream up fabulous surprises just for Union Station’s dearest supporters,” she says. “This year we bring the best of our Beatles deconstruction to An Evening for the Station.”
These “mash-ups” are designed by Rachael Worby and they feature orchestra musicians with rock, pop, country and gospel artists. Together they will uncover the sublime genius of rock’s most revolutionary group.
Event tickets are just $40, and include hors d’oeuvres.
Noor is at 260 E. Colorado Blvd., Pasadena CA.
