Pasadena, CA –Union Station Homeless Services and Muse/ique are teaming for a spectacular evening of entertainment for a great cause. The 14th annual An Evening for the Station benefit concert will feature a Motown/Mashup by MUSE/IQUE, the “counter conventional” orchestra. The event will be held on October 28 at 6pm, at Pandora on Green in Pasadena.
All proceeds from 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.
“Union Station makes this city better place,” says Rachael Worby. “They raise up the dignity and humanity of our community as a whole. As an orchestra founded on the idea of deriving inspiration and imagination from an enlivened civic landscape, we are deeply moved and inspired by their mission. It is an honor to partner with them for this event.”
Headlining the concert is the multi-talented Ellis Hall. Considered the “Ambassador of Soul,” Ellis has performed with music greats like Ray Charles, Earth Wind and Fire, Kenny G., Stevie Wonder, and more. Recognized early as a child prodigy, his gifts didn’t come without challenges. Ellis battled through complete blindness to master the bass, guitar, keyboards, and drums. Nothing has held him back and his music will enthrall.
