Conrad Kehn's Playground Ensemble, known for sharing difficult music from a modern age, is reaching back into the twentieth century canon of contemporary music to present twelve-tone composer Arnold Shoenberg's dark yet whimsical song cycle Pierrot Lunaire for tomorrow's Classical Night at Dazzle Restaurant and Lounge. But Playground will further shine its spotlight on Shoenberg's poetic cycle with a suite of Pierrot-themed artworks by local artists. Each of the seven artists -- Tony Achilles, Kalin Baker, Tia Christine, James Herbert, Eric Matelski, Henry Sanger and Peter Strange Yumi -- contributed three works, all of which will be on display at Dazzle, while some images will also be projected as the concert unfolds. The music starts at 7 p.m. March 4 and tickets are $12. Visit Mod Tickets online for reservations. Following is a sampler of Playground's artwork pastiche, noting which song each work represents.
