SUNRISE TO SUNSET

in Valais

featuring singers Brandon Victor Dixon, Kecia Lewisand the DC 6 Singers

When it comes to the Los Angeles dream, all roads lead to Sunset Boulevard, one of the most famous streets in the world, synonymous with the City of Angels. From grit to glitz, this 22-mile stretch of sidewalk is a matrix of musical intersections, the birthplace of inventions that have left an eternal mark on the city. MUSE/IQUE explores this epicenter of the cultural revolution as the sun rises on the LA Composée season.

LAUREL CANYON

A few miles from Hollywood’s bustling scene and slightly out of sight was an oasis where singer-songwriters converged to reinvent the way music was created and performed. With artists like The Mamas and the Papas in Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, in Linda Ronstadt and Joni Mitchelland many others, Laurel Canyon became a cradle of exploration and a new genre of music that could only have happened in these Los Angeles canyons.

WHITTIER BLVD.

More than any other street, Whittier Boulevard tells the story of musical eclecticism. On Whittier, Mexican American musicians blend music from all over Los Angeles to create an all-new sound and genre-defying flavor that shimmers and titillates with an instantly identifiable beat. With influences ranging from coastal rock ‘n’ roll to Central Avenue beats, Whittier represents what happens when a fusion of sounds is filtered through Mexican-American culture and experience to become something entirely new. .

HOLLYWOOD AND VINE

at Avalon Hollywood

Long before movies had the technology to transport audiences to new worlds and dazzle them with special effects, music brought the imagination to life. As Hollywood and Vine grew from citrus groves to music capital of the world, thousands of musicians made their mark in Los Angeles on sound stages and recording studios and everywhere in between.

CENTRAL AVENUE

Dates and place to be specified

The Harlem of the West, the center of the soul of Los Angeles. Central Avenue was a buzzing hub of nightlife that erupted with sound from every block and brought a community together like only music can. It’s a place where the music reflected the African-American experience in Los Angeles, and where West Coast Jazz was born. In this performance, MUSE/QUE honors and celebrates the legacy of Central Avenue and its impact on our city and beyond.

SUNSET ON SUNSET

Dates and place to be specified

Every musical movement in Los Angeles has its roots on Sunset Boulevard. With this season-ending performance, MUSE/IQUE traces the musical mystique of Sunset Boulevard, from film noir to the glamor of the famous “Sunset Strip”.

Over the past decade, MUSE/IQUE has curated and presented unexpected musical adventures that break down the customs, norms and barriers of the traditional concert experience. MUSE/IQUE has never had a formal concert hall – the city is the place – and no genre or style of performance is emphasized. Instead, cross-genre and multidisciplinary performances are set in iconic community locations.

MUSE/IQUE membership starts at $200 and MUSE/IQUE members receive free admission to all MUSE/IQUE events.

Admission for non-members starts at $75 and includes trial membership and admission to the next three MUSE/IQUE events.
