This is a Groupmuse Night Out

Explore the wider world of music outside Groupmuse with exclusive discounts to local concerts.

Join the critically-acclaimed Chameleon Arts Ensemble for “God and Monsters” on Saturday, October 29 at 8 PM at First Church in Boston.

The title comes from the classic 1935 film, Bride of Frankenstein, but like the movie, the theme is not really about Gods… or Monsters at all… Rather, it’s about invention and imagination, and the way that good old-fashioned storytelling illuminates the human experience. The program is bookended by classical music’s most poetic and imaginative storyteller, Robert Schumann. In between, Andrew List imagines wild, nighttime celebrations by the statuary at Notre Dame, Cynthia Lee Wong offers a haunting soundscape inspired by Edgar Allan Poe’s Ligeia, and Andre Caplet borrows Poe’s The Masque of the Red Death for a fiercely lavish tone poem for harp and string quartet.

Tickets to this event are only $15 (and $10 for Supermusers)! Start your spooky weekend off right.

More information about this program can be found on the Chameleon Art Ensemble's website.
