You choose the tunes, SHUFFLE – a hot young group of New-York based Chamber Musicians — plays them!  From classical, baroque, to romantic, to Jazz, pop and Broadway, you, the audience, curate the show. The result — an unexpected, inspiring and energetic concert by this modern day chamber group.

SHUFFLE delivers the unexpected. Inspiring and energetic, this ensemble changes the rules of performance as we know it.

Conceived by SHUFFLE’s artistic director and pianist, Eliran Avni, SHUFFLE Concert was born while Avni was exercising on the elliptical machine at the gym. His MP3 player jumped from a Pretenders song to the first movement of Prokofiev’s Fifth Symphony, nearly causing him to lose his balance… and thus, the idea for SHUFFLE Concert was devised.

You, the audience, are invited to actively participate in the selection of works to be performed by choosing from a menu of over 30 works derived from 15 different styles, with works ranging from solos and duos, to trios, quartets, quintets and sextets. Genres vary from classical, baroque, and romantic, to Jazz, pop and Broadway. The result is a highly engaged audience and a high energy performance featuring soprano vocals, piano, violin, cello, oboe, and clarinet.

“To be in the room that evening … was to discover the tension and the drama of never knowing what’s next. ... As they played, they swayed. ... They moved as if the music were something they were riding atop, not creating.” —Anand Giridharadas, The New York Times

Accomplished chamber musicians, graduates of music schools including Juilliard and Oberlin, the incredible winners of numerous prizes for performances all over the world – you are in for an evening with SHUFFLE, an incredible Saturday night!
