Do you have an appreciation for music that’s pure sound? Where when it’s played in a room, it becomes so overwhelming and entrancing that you can tune out all your other thoughts and lose yourself completely? No, it’s not dubstep—I’m talking about classical music! Remember? With real instruments and composers? Beethoven? Dvórak? Not sure? Well, maybe it’s time to freshen up your iTunes, or at least open up your musical tastes to the Ives Quartet
, a four-person string quartet that integrates classical pieces and their own interpretations. Based in the Bay Area, the Ives Quartet plays annually in San Jose, San Francisco and the Peninsula, but also travels to festivals and performances both nationally and globally. See them on Saturday, Feb 25, at the Dance Palace. 503 B St., Point Reyes. 8pm. $33. 415.663.1075.
