Where the locals at?

Matt Marks ( and a couple other Kensingtonians are putting on a far-out awesome concert in Brooklyn Heights this Friday night.
Ensemble de Sade strives to revolutionize the relationship between performer and audience. While the standard deviation from the traditional concert modes has been to relax the boundaries between performer and audience, Ensemble de Sade seeks an intensification of the boundaries, an increase of the tension between the two opposing sides. The underlying hostility will become the basis for a new expression, one that exposes and utilizes the thinly concealed expressions of masochism and sadism inherent in all performance settings.

Music by: Michael Nyman, John Zorn, Krzysztof Penderecki, and featuring a radical imagining of Arnold Schoenberg's Pierrot Lunaire
Ensemble de Sade is:
Caleb Burhans - violin/viola, Mellissa Hughes - voice, Bill Kalinkos - clarinet, Kelli Kathman - flute, Amir Kohrospour - piano, Matt Marks - horn, Kevin McFarland - cello, James Moore - guitar, John Pickford Richards - viola, Wil Smith - organ. Featuring Sara Katzoff as the Mistress of Ceremonies
