SHUFFLE

 

A modern day ensemble that delivers the unexpected.   Inspiring and energetic, New York-based ensemble SHUFFLE Concert changes the rules of performance as we know it. Conceived by SHUFFLE’s artistic director and pianist, Eliran Avni, SHUFFLE 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 was born!

        SHUFFLE’s members are exceptionally accomplished chamber musicians; they are graduates of such schools as Juilliard, New England Conservatory, Oberlin, Manhattan School of Music, and Bard College.  They all have individually won numerous prizes and have performed extensively as soloists and collaborative musicians throughout the world.

BRYAN ANTHONY

Bryan isn’t worried about musical labels. Whether you call him a jazz singer with pop sensibilities or a pop vocalist steeped in jazz, he’s staked his artistic identity in the vast and beloved collection of songs that emanated from Broadway, Hollywood and Tin Pan Alley in the first half of the 20th century. His new album A Night Like This is the work of a performer with the personality, technique, and panache required to inhabit the music of Gershwin, Berlin, Jimmy McHugh, Vernon Duke, and the other ingenious tunesmiths responsible for the American Songbook.
