(Nov. 22) IBIS + IOTA = IBOTA
Arlington’s IBIS Chamber Music Society takes to the stage of Arlington’s IOTA Club & Cafe tonight for a show that promises to venture out of comfort zones. The daring gang made up of members from local orchestras of note perform string quartets by Tchaikovsky and Barber between arrangements of Amazing Grace and folk songs by Ralph Vaughn Williams.

(Nov. 22-Dec. 11) Exchange artists
Arlington’s Artisphere is showing the output of an international artist exchange. Artists from Arlington’s sister city Aachen, Germany dropped by earlier this month to create installation pieces in a few of the venue’s gallery spaces. They’re showing through mid-December.

(Nov. 22-27) Haven
Washington printmaker Pauline Jakobsberg visualizes her father’s 1939 escape from Nazi Germany in Haven, showing at Pyramid Atlantic Art Center in Silver Spring until Sunday. She attempts to capture the hardship of his second life in Bolivia with references to journal sketches, stories and the country’s artifacts.

Music: “Improvisation On Tchaikowsky's ‘Pathétique’ Andante” by Django Reinhardt and Stéphane Grappelli
