Spokane String Quartet plays Broadway and Beethoven

The Spokane String Quartet will take a detour down Broadway during its concert Sunday at 3 p.m. at the Bing Crosby Theater.

The program features Alexander Borodin’s String Quartet No. 2, which provided the melodies for “Baubles, Bangles and Beads” and “This Is My Beloved” for the 1953 Broadway musical “Kismet” – and earned Borodin a Tony award a half-century after his death.

The quartet also will perform Ludwig van Beethoven’s Serenade and Joaquin Turina’s “La oracion del torero” (“The Bullfighter’s Prayer’).

Tickets are $18 for adults, $15 for seniors and $10 for students, through TicketsWest outlets (509-325-SEAT, 800-325-SEAT, www.ticketswest.com).
