Definitely "not your mama's string quartet," the four classically trained players of Quartet Rouge—Kathy Marshall and Erin Benim on violins, Michi Aceret on viola, and cellist Rachel Turner Houk—play a wide variety of rock, pop, and indie material in great, original arrangements. Fresh from their success with Green Day's American Idiot show at the Berkeley Rep, come hear this bold and babelicious group range from Mozart to Megadeth at their Freight & Salvage premiere.

Classical at the Freight brings the Bay Area's best classical musicians to the Freight for an hour of top-flight chamber music in an informal, friendly atmosphere. San Francisco Chamber Orchestra music director Benjamin Simon is your host; his goal is to un-stuffify and de-mystify classical music for the general music lover, sharing the joys and rewards of this timeless art with new audiences young and old.
