Caltech's Beckman Mall, Pasadena
With Table Seating for Dining and Picnicking

MUSE/IQUE, known for its live music events filled with inspired, unexpected connections linking master artists with new voices across a limitless range of styles, continues its outdoor Summer Series 2013 with "Moving Pictures," featuring groundbreaking cellist Matt Haimovitz and actress Wendie Malick ("Hot in Cleveland"), on Saturday, July 27, 2013.  The evening, curated by Artistic Director/Conductor Rachael Worby who leads the MUSE/IQUE orchestra, offers a fresh take on motion picture scores by Elmer Bernstein, Jerry Goldsmith and Erich Korngold as well as a world premiere of a work by Peter Golub, prolific composer for films and theatre and director of Sundance's Film Music Program, and some Bach and Beethoven too.  Malick narrates Benjamin Britten's The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra, loved anew thanks to its prominence in Moonrise Kingdom, and Laura Karpman's Different Lanes, in which urban images/freeway music run wild, is shown.  MUSE/IQUE's Summer Series, which re-imagines music in performances that feel more like parties than formal concerts, takes place at Caltech's Beckman Mall in Pasadena, the grassy area south of Beckman Auditorium, with table and bleacher seating.  Gates open at 5:30 pm for dinner (ordered in advance) or bring-your-own picnics, with performances at 7:30 pm.  Plentiful parking is free.

Caltech's Beckman Mall is located at 332 S. Michigan Ave. Pasadena CA 91106.  Single tickets are $10 to $96 per person; students with ID are $10.  MUSE/IQUE membership, which ranges from $250 to $1,000, includes a variety of special benefits including priority seating and services.  For tickets and membership information, please call 626-539-7085 or visit www.muse-ique.com.
