Music at the Art Museum

Avant-garde singer and violinist Iva Bittová started her career as an actress, but turned to music in the early '80s. The Czech Republic native's dramatic background informs her music in unexpected ways: Among other things, Bittová proves that there's more than one way to play a violin, and her unorthodox vocal style ranges from sublimely pretty to downright unsettling. Tonight, Bittová takes the stage with the Calder Quartet at the Cleveland Museum of Art, as part of this year's VIVA! & Gala performing arts series. Bittová will perform solo and with the equally inventive Calder Quartet, a group whose prestigious and eclectic pedigree includes both serving as the Graduate Resident String Quartet at Juilliard and collaborating with Vampire Weekend and Andrew W.K. The performance starts at 7:30 in the Gartner Auditorium. Tickets are $26 to $30, with discounts for students and CMA members. For more information or tickets, call 216-421-7350 or visit clevelandart.org. The Cleveland Museum of Art is at 11150 East Blvd. in University Circle.— Bill Delaney
