On his way to school, Bastian (Barret Oliver) ducks into a bookstore to avoid bullies. Sneaking away with a book called “The NeverEnding Story,” Bastian begins reading it in the school attic. The novel is about Fantasia, a fantasy land threatened by “The Nothing,” a darkness that destroys everything it touches. The kingdom needs the help of a human child to survive. When Bastian reads a description of himself in the book, he begins to wonder if Fantasia is real and needs him to survive.

Ensemble Mélange, formerly known as SHUFFLE Concert, is a joyful sextet of all-star virtuoso’s. 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.

With a philosophical investment in reaching out to children, the group is dedicated to bringing in the next generation of music lovers, as well as having good fun with the current one.

How does it work? Everyone in the audience has a program with a number on it. We quickly explain the rules of the game, and then after each piece, a new member in the audience is chosen by a randomizer app to choose the next piece. The program includes classical music of a wide variety of genres, brilliant transcriptions, some jazz, innovative arrangements of tango and musical theater, and pieces that were written specifically for us.

Most pieces are between three and six minutes; the concert moves quickly and you’ll be exposed to something you never knew you were going to love with no fidgeting necessary!

It is a concert that is fun for audience members of every age and walk of life; bring the kids, bring grandma!
