8. EVENTS: Lesbian Love Poetry/Jacaranda Music
French composer Eric Tanguy will present Trio, bringing together two prominent Los Angeles classical music foursomes, the Calder Quartet and the Lyris Quartet. But before that, two works by Claude Debussy honoring his sesquicentennial will be performed: his famous 1913 flute solo, “Syrinx,” performed by Pamela Vliek-Martchev, and his rarely performed 1901 setting of “Chanson de Bilitis." The latter will be performed with French actress Clara Bellar reciting a sensual lesbian love poem, which has been largely attributed to the seventh-century B.C. Greek poet Bilitis, a contemporary of Sappho. Oui, s'il vous plaît! Saturday, 8 p.m., First Presbyterian Church of Santa Monica, 1220 Second St., Santa Monica, Calif.
