Albany Consort performs Saturday at Los Altos Lutheran Church

The Albany Consort presents “Bad, Sad & Mad,” a concert scheduled 7-9 p.m. Saturday at Los Altos Lutheran Church, 460 S. El Monte Road.

The program includes music that reflects darkness, strangeness and profound sadness, without being sparse and depressing. This includes a new piece by Berkeley composer Sheli Nan titled “Requiem for the Ancestors: Dia de Los Muertos,” along with Dowland’s “Lachrymae” and Tartini’s violin sonata, “Devil’s Trill.”

Pear Theatre continues its 2016-2017 season with George Bernard Shaw’s “Major Barbara,” a look at human nature, religion and social engineering. The show is scheduled to preview Thursday, open Friday and run through Nov. 20 in Mountain View.

“Can poverty and happiness coexist? Is money the root of all evil, or of all good?” director Betsy Kruse Craig said of the play. “Shaw created this very funny play, with these diverse characters – some lovable, some exasperating, all very human. And into this comedy he inserts questions, ideas – leading the audience into a philosophical minefield.”
