With their signature concert experience expressed in their name, the NYC-based chamber music ensemble Mélange (formerly known as SHUFFLE) changes the rules of performance as we know it. The audience is invited to actively participate in the selection of works to be performed by choosing from a menu of over 30 works. Their menu repertoire ranges from one to six performers, and from genres such as classical, baroque, romantic, jazz, Latin, and Broadway. Every audience member gets a unique number, and anyone can be chosen to pick the next piece. The result is a high energy chamber music performance that engages audiences unlike anything else. The New York Times praised their unique concert experience, describing Mélange as the kind of ensemble that relish "the bond with a living, choosing audience."
