OUT AND ABOUT: 5 things to do this weekend in Cobb County -- November 4-6

Nov. 3—Quarteto Nuevo

Enjoy Quarteto Nuevo at the Strand Theatre in Marietta Square on Saturday.

Quarteto Nuevo merges western classical, eastern European folk, Latin and jazz with an organic feel that packs a wallop. Their diverse programs can be tailored to fit anywhere, from an intimate chamber music venue to a large outdoor festival. The ensemble's razor-sharp precision is enhanced by jazzy interludes, lightly rumbling percussion motifs and mesmerizing rhythms.

Winners of the Beverly Hills National Auditions, Quarteto's master musicians create emotionally charged soundscapes with instruments and sensibilities that represent very different world cultures.

General admission tickets are $30 and VIP tickets are $60.
