MUSE/IQUE presents Bach the Creator, a very special evening featuring polymath Julia Greer, Caltech physicist and pianist, as she recreates an atmosphere of curiosity and wonderment alongside Rachael Worby who will lead a late-night discussion about the science, structure and artistry of the inventor of classical music.

Rachael Worby is that rare conductor who is a skilled communicator with a wide range of repertoire that appeals to audiences everywhere. Distinguished as a visionary in the orchestral world, she is celebrated internationally for her extraordinary talents and exuberant style, as well as her versatile command of all musical genres-symphonic, operatic, pops, classics, and 21st century. A dedicated orchestra builder, she is credited with the remarkable growth of organizations under her leadership. She is an unforgettable, inspiring and charismatic presence on the podium. n March 2011, Ms. Worby founded MUSE/IQUE in order to bring fresh perspective to live music and multidisciplinary arts.  A notable facet of MUSE/IQUE’s work is Ms. Worby’s style of direct communication with all audiences and an enlightening curatorial approach to mixing together an eclectic range of artists and genres.  MUSE/IQUE aims to redefine the notion of civic orchestra by imagining orchestral events as  ephemeral living art installations in public spaces. 

Julia R. Greer received her undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering (with a minor in Music) from MIT, after which she worked as an intern in Components Research Department of Intel Corp. while pursuing a M.S. In Materials Science at Stanford University. Subsequently, after working at Intel’s Mask Operations Department for 2 years, Julia received a Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering from Stanford University studying size effects in plasticity of metals at the nano-scale with Professor William D. Nix. Throughout her scientific career, Julia has also been pursuing her “secondary career” as a concert pianist – having studied at the Moscow’s Gnessin School of Music, the Eastman School of Music, the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, and at Stanford. She has performed numerous solo recitals, chamber music concerts, as well as as a soloist with an orchestra.
