STRINGS ATTACHED: Chamber Music Silicon Valley presents a festival where old meets new in ‘Silicon Valley Music Festival.’

Close out the summer by getting in touch with your primal instincts. This year’s Silicon Valley Music Festival focuses on primitive concepts and traditional art forms. The three-day festival will feature both visual and audio artists performing pieces inspired by and depicting human interaction with nature. On Friday, hear a musical interpretation of the Colorado River. On Saturday, check out a new interpretation of Igor Stravinski’s Rite of Spring. And on Sunday hear a chamber orchestra’s take on the same piece at Santa Clara University’s Recital Hall. That performance will be followed by a Q&A with the arranger, Anthony Rivera.
