Due to Hurricane Florence, this concert has been rescheduled from September 17, 2018 to February 4, 2019. To all ticket holders, your Sep. 17 tickets may be used to attend the Feb. 4 concert.
Ensemble Mélange, formerly known as SHUFFLE Concert, is a joyful sextet of all-star virtuosos. Ensemble Mélange shakes up the concert experience, forges a personal connection with the audience, and mixes tried-and-true repertoire with a smorgasbord of jewels from distant genres. The concert is reformatted as a musician’s party game; after each piece, members of the audience are chosen to pick the next piece from an extensive menu organized by style, nationality, and time period. Whether you’re a purist or a populist, a snob or a noob, eight years old or eighty years old, you’ll leave charmed and punch-drunk on a piece you didn’t know you were going to love.
The full season is Omer Quartet on 10/15/18; Mélange on 2/4/19; Lucas Meachem, baritone on 3/4/19; violinist Benjamin Beilman & pianist Andrew Tyson on 4/8/19.
