Art + live music

'The Great American West'

The Pacific Art League's current exhibition, "The Great American West," features landscapes celebrating the beauty of the western U.S., including the Grand Canyon, Yosemite and the Pacific coast. To coincide with this exhibition, the league will host an evening of live music by the Palo Alto-based Corina Quartet, performing a piece composed by Be'eri Moalem (a local musician, teacher and sometimes Palo Alto Weekly contributor). Moalem's composition "Multnomah" was inspired by a rainy drive to Portland, Oregon. The Corina Quartet will also play Felix Mendelssohn's "Canzonetta," Ernst Bloch's "Meditation," Quartet #3 by Michael Nyman, George Gershwin's "Lullaby," selections from "West Side Story" by Leonard Bernstein, and songs by Percy Granger and Artie Shaw. The event will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 14, at 668 Ramona St., Palo Alto. The event is free; donations are accepted and refreshments will be offered. "The Great American West" exhibition runs through July 26. Go to PAL.
