The sounds of Greece and Russia will fill CenterStage next week.

The Greek quintet Pangeo performs Sunday at the downtown venue, 1017 W. First Ave. On Wednesday, the Spokane String Quartet will salute “Russia in the Dark of Winter.”

Seattle-based Pangeo is led by Cristos Govetas, recipient of a 1999 Washington State Arts Fellowship Award and an accomplished artist on the bouzouki and laouto (stringed instruments), oud (lute) and zourna (clarinet).

In its second CenterStage concert of the season, the Spokane String Quartet will perform pieces including Shostakovich’s String Quartet No. 13 and Beethoven’s Op. 9, No. 1, the first of his quartets to use a Russian theme.

Both performances are dinner concerts. A Greek menu will be served Sunday at 5:30 p.m. followed by music at 7, and Russian fare on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. with the concert at 7:30.

Tickets for each concert are $43 for food and show, $22 for show only ($17 for children 17 and under), through the CenterStage box office (747-8243) and TicketsWest outlets (325-SEAT, 800-325-SEAT,
