“Quercus” is Latin for oak tree and the inspiration for the name of a distinguished chamber ensemble from Raleigh, the City of Oaks. Specializing in the rich musical literature for piano quartet, Quercus performs the work of three modern European masters—Jean Françaix, Karel Husa, and Bohuslav Martinů—whose music reflects the power, propulsion, and innovation associated with the Porsche sports car.

Docent-led tours of Porsche by Design: Seducing Speed are offered at 1:45 pm and require tickets. Limited availability; reservations required at least one week in advance. Contact Christine Molesky, (919) 664-6785.

Subject to availability, tickets may be purchased at the door. Advance tickets may be purchased online or by calling the Museum Box Office, (919) 715-5923. Tickets may also be obtained from the Raleigh Chamber Music Guild, (919) 821-2030.

Sights and Sounds on Sundays is funded, in part, by the City of Raleigh, based on recommendations of the Raleigh Arts Commission; and by the United Arts Council of Raleigh and Wake County, with funds from the United Arts Campaign; as well as by the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Cultural Resources.
