New York, NY (Top40 Charts) MUSE/IQUE, Pasadena's pioneering live music organization, kicks off its signature Uncorked series with CAR/TUNES, an intimate evening of iconic car songs and conversation on Sunday, October 28, 2018. In the MUSE/IQUE tradition of creating seamless connections between venue and performance, CAR/TUNES serves as the capstone event of Car Classic 2018. The audience will be situated among beautiful classic and iconic cars at the ArtCenter College of Design, one of today's leading institutions in automotive design.

Artistic Director Rachael Worby and guest artists Goodtime Boys Band, tenor Ashley Faatoalia, singer LaNesha Latimer, and musical duo Jordan Bush (banjo) and Armando Wood (bass) will take the audience back to the open road, when a full tank of gas and the perfect song inspired endless possibilities. From Wilson Pickett's "Mustang Sally" and The Beach Boys "Little Old Lady from Pasadena," to Neil Young's "Long May You Run" and Tracy Chapman's "Fast Car," the evening's repertoire will explore the intersection of music and cars in popular culture, in both unique and illuminating ways, drawing upon personal memories and igniting the imagination.

MUSE/IQUE's 2018-2019 Uncorked series is an exploration of the role of songs in our lives, from the ditties we sing in our cars to love ballads to anthems of healing and beyond. The Uncorked experience is designed to break conventions by eliminating barriers, deconstructing music and carefully curating experiences within improvised urban venues for extraordinary performances. Venues include warehouses, factories, schools, and iconic cultural locales in Pasadena. MUSE/IQUE partners with inspiring artists who share their passion for collaborative exploration of non-traditional performance. Each Uncorked performance is preceded by a wine reception, and opportunities to mingle and explore the iconic locales that serve as the impromptu venues for the series.

Upcoming 2018-2019 Uncorked events include:

SINGING/STORIES, Sunday, December 2, 2018

Before humanity could write, we sang. We kept our stories alive from generation to generation through the power of music, using nothing but our voices. Music evokes deep wells of memory and unites us in shared emotion. Gather together with friends and join Rachael Worby and her stable of musical poets for an evening of remembering all there is that connects us.

Programming and venue to be announced.

A CAPELLA/AWAKENING, Sunday, January 27, 2019

Songs are universal vehicles of personal discovery that reveal great beauty and meaning. This event will explore the human voice in its many combinations and talents and how those permutations-from quirky fun to deeply spiritual-inform and express who we are.

Programming and venue to be announced.

UNRESTRAINED/REFRAINS, Sunday, March 31, 2019

Garages are where people experiment, work, play, store tools (of course), and occasionally park their cars. For many, including musicians, they're an endless playground, ripe with creative possibilities for ideas and songs to come alive. Join us for the MUSE/IQUE version of a garage-inspired jam session.

Programming and venue to be announced.

SWINGING/STARS, Sunday May 19, 2019

The cosmos inspires us to wonder and dream without limitations, and connects us to the greater universe that is an intrinsic part of our existence. The sky and stars above us have inspired music-making throughout history. From Gustav Holst to David Bowie, we will explore the inextricable link between the cosmos and song, illuminating our place in the world.

Programming and venue to be announced.
