Today's Local Music: Quartet San Francisco

The sounds you’re hearing are by the Quartet San Francisco. They aren’t your typical chamber quartet. As they say, “When the music says swing, we swing. When the music says groove, we groove.”

The Quartet San Francisco might be swinging and grooving on Sunday, July 27th; that’s when they open for Rufus Wainwright at the Stern Grove Festival in -- where else -- San Francisco’s Stern Grove. Music starts at 2:00pm, but everyone knows to get there much earlier!
