Laguna Beach Live! presents Argus Quartet at the Laguna Art Museum on Thursday, March 8, 7 pm.
Praised for their “supreme melodic control and total authority,” the Argus Quartet also believes that today’s ensembles can honor the chamber music traditions while forging a new path forward. Their repertoire includes staples of the chamber music canon works by living composers.
The 7 p.m. concert is free to museum members and to non-members with museum admission.
