Rounding out the Russian River Chamber Music season this weekend is the Galax Quartet
, who present compositions set to the poetry of Pulitzer-winning poet Gary Snyder as sung by contralto Karen Clark. With music by the likes of downtown New York guitarist Fred Frith and Duke Ellington arranger Allaudin Mathieu, this isn’t your grandma’s classical concert—there’s even an afterparty with the artists at Spoonbar.
