Our Season

SEASON 12: DODECAPHONICA

The Playground’s 12th season reveals the dynamic and multifaceted state of today’s music:  works inspired by visual art, and music as visual art. Works by Pulitzer Prize winning composers and by young local talent.  Performances in concert halls, private homes, a bookstore, a library, a hospital. Two collaborations with choruses. Take a chance or take your pick!
