The magic in music — whether it be transforming notes from devilish to delightful, or the sheer, dream-like quality of early 20th century compositions — that magic is at the heart of the Chameleon Arts Ensemble's 15th Anniversary Season Finale, titled "Mystic Moons and Dream Music."

The concert itself is the product of a dream. Artistic director Deborah Boldin once had an epiphany, scrawled it on a piece of paper, and taped it to the wall.   She tells us how she took three seemingly disparate works and composers and wove them into a textured presentation of beauty and complexity within early 20th century music.
