Saturday, Aug. 19, 2 p.m. Quarteto Nuevo Ruby G. Schulman Auditorium, Carlsbad City Library complex, 1775 Dove Lane Quarteto Neuvo is a world chamber music group that merges western classical, eastern European folk, Latin and jazz with an organic feel that packs a wallop! The ensemble’s razor-sharp precision is enhanced by its jazzy interludes, lightly rumbling percussion motifs and difficult to navigate time signatures. They effectively meld the music of ancient worlds and faraway places with a contemporary groove. Free tickets distributed beginning at noon. http://www.quartetonuevo.com/
