Shuffle Concert Restacks the Musical Deck

Shuffle Concert Restacks the Musical Deck Imagine a live concert where the audience chooses the music. A pop song immediately follows a Baroque concerto. Forty possible musical works can be randomly selected from nineteen different musical styles. It’s all possible when the Shuffle Concert returns to Central Oregon at Bend’s historic Tower Theatre, Tuesday, April 23, at 7:30 pm.

Shuffle Concert is a unique a group of six virtuoso musicians who are re-inventing the way chamber concerts are presented and performed. Everyone who comes to the Shuffle Concert will receive an individually numbered menu filled with musical masterpieces in every musical style: Baroque, Classical and Romantic to Jazz, Pop and Broadway. When a menu number is selected, that audience member with that number then chooses the musical style and individual song the sextet will perform next. Every concert is a completely new experience, both for the audience and the Shuffle Concert performers.

“The Shuffle Concert is the only live stage performance where you, random chance, and some exceptional chamber musicians take center stage together!” said Ray Solley, Executive Director of the Tower Theatre Foundation. “It was quite a hit recently at the Redmond Community Concert Association,” Solley added. “We think Tower audiences will love this unpredictable fusion of great music for every musical taste.”

The Tower Theatre Foundation owns and operates the historic stage in downtown Bend. The Foundation’s mission is to provide performing arts, civic, educational and social events that enliven and enrich the lives of all Central Oregonians. Membership, program information and individual and group tickets are available at the box office (835 NW Wall), by phone (541-317-0700) or online (www.towertheatre.org).
