Brooklyn-based alt classical trio Time for Three plays the Austin Chamber Music Festival on Saturday.

Friday-Sunday

Austin Chamber Music Festival. The final weekend of Austin’s annual eclectic chamber music fest wraps up with a trio of diverse concerts:

Trio Con Brio Copenhagen. The noted piano threesome plays Ravel’s Piano Trio in A Minor and the Piano Trio No. 1 D Minor by Russian Romantic-era composer Anton Arensky. 7:30 p.m Friday.

Time for Three. Part jazz ensemble, part alt classical group, Time for Three is one of the genre-defying groups who really prefer not to fit into any genre. Two violinists and a double-bassist make up this trio whose repertoire encompasses everything from Bach to bluegrass to ingenious mash-ups of hits by Kanye West, Katy Perry, Justin Timberlake and more. 7:30 p.m Saturday.

Cactus Pear Ensemble. This San Antonio-based sextet will play a program including Verdi’s String Quartet in E Minor, Wolf’s “Italian Serenade” for String Quartet in G Major and Tchaikovsky’s sextet “Souvenir de Florence.” 3 p.m. Sunday.

All concerts are at Bates Recital Hall, 2406 Robert Dedman Drive. $30–$50 in advance; $35–$55 at the door. 512-454-0026, austinchambermusic.org
