MUSICAL EXPERIENCE AT THE MARK TAPER FORUM, IN PARTNERSHIP WITH MUSE/IQUE.
MUSE/IQUE makes its Mark Taper Forum debut with Magic Hour in Los Angeles: America’s Cultural Renaissance of 1974!
1974 in Los Angeles was, in a word, magic. At a time when Americans began breaking free from post-war conformity, the city that outsiders once considered glitzy and superficial emerged as the unlikely cultural epicenter for exponential creativity and blossoming self-expression. Not only did groundbreaking works of art from film, television, and theatre spring forth from this "magic hour", but so did the idea that it is often art and pop culture that lead our way forward. Join MUSE/IQUE and CTG:FWD as we celebrate the creative heavy-hitters who transformed our city and the year that crowned Los Angeles the cultural capital of the world.
Curated and led by MUSE/IQUE Artistic & Music Director Rachael Worby, featuring spectacular vocalists Javier Almaráz, LaVance Colley, Rachel Gonzalez, and The DC6 Singers Collective, the soaring MUSE/IQUE orchestra bringing to life the music of Stevie Wonder, Jerry Goldsmith, Los Lobos, Joni Mitchell, The Eagles, and a look back at the plays and artists who graced the stage of the Mark Taper Forum in 1974!
MUSE/IQUE is a member-supported, nonprofit performing arts organization making radically engaging live music experiences accessible for all. Built on a tradition of community and collaboration, we create events that feature an eclectic mix of artists and artistic disciplines in unconventional locations—spaces where art typically does not happen. MUSE/IQUE creates transformative musical adventures and illuminates the music that shapes our lives. By reimagining the traditional format of the live classical orchestral experience, Artistic Director Rachael Worby seamlessly blends musical performances with researched curation. Our mission is to build empathy and expand imaginations through transformative live events and strong partnerships with fellow nonprofit organizations in Pasadena and the greater Los Angeles area.
We are pleased to announce a series of special events and programming at the Mark Taper Forum, the Kirk Douglas Theatre, and throughout the greater Los Angeles area.
These events are the first formally announced under a new initiative created by Artistic Director Snehal Desai called CTG:FWD
2024 CTG:FWD programming at the Mark Taper Forum is made possible through the generous support of the S. Mark Taper Foundation. Additional funding is provided by gifts to the Artistic Director Discretionary Fund.
Mark Taper Forum is located at 135 N. Grand Ave., Los Angeles CA 90012.Learn More
