ON­STAGE THIS WEEK

Pasatiempo - - Onstage This Week -

The 52 women that make up the United States Naval Academy

Women’s Glee Club sing ev­ery­thing from Broad­way show tunes to patriotic songs to Han­del’s Mes­siah. Fresh from re­cent tours of Brazil, Florida, Cal­i­for­nia, and Hawaii, the cho­ral en­sem­ble is in Santa Fe this week­end. The free con­cert takes place at

St. Fran­cis Au­di­to­rium at the New Mex­ico Mu­seum of Art (107 W. Palace Ave., 476-5072). Doors open at 1:30 p.m. for the

2 p.m. per­for­mance on Sun­day, March 13. San Fran­cisco in­die-folk duo

The Do­dos brings its jin­gle and its jan­gle to an all-ages show at

Ware­house 21 (1614 Paseo de Per­alta) at 7 p.m. Mon­day,

March 14, with The Mum­lers open­ing. The Do­dos’ 2009 al­bum

Time to Die was pro­duced by Phil Ek, who has worked with The Shins, Band of Horses, and Fleet

Foxes — a fact worth not­ing, be­cause The Do­dos share those artists’ use of re­ver­ber­at­ing gui­tars

and epic sense of space. Mix in a healthy help­ing of the Smiths and some un­ortho­dox use of per­cus­sion

in­stru­ments, and you have one fire­cracker of a live per­for­mance. The Do­dos are on their way up, so the chance to catch them in rooms

as small as this one may soon be ex­tinct. Tick­ets, $12, are avail­able

from Tick­ets Santa Fe at the Len­sic (www.tick­etssantafe.org, 988-1234). Call 989-4423 or visit

www.ware­house21.org. Los An­ge­les-based en­sem­ble Sam­baguru fash­ions an en­er­getic and eclec­tic blend of Latin-in­flu­enced world beat with rhythms and cho­ral ar­range­ments rooted in the mu­sic and dance tra­di­tions of its Brazil­ian vo­cal­ist and lyri­cist, Ká­tia Moraes. Sam­baguru’s melt­ing pot of Amer­i­can, South Amer­i­can, and Sri Lankan mu­si­cians singing in English, Span­ish, and Por­tuguese re­sults in an in­fec­tious fu­sion of samba, bossa nova, AfroCuban jazz, and choro. Sam­baguru per­forms at 7 p.m. Sun­day, March 13,

at the Len­sic Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter (211 W. San Fran­cisco St.). Tick­ets, $15 to $35, are avail­able by call­ing 988-1234 and from www.tick­etssantafe.org.

Ser­e­nata of Santa Fe of­fers a grab bag of cham­ber mu­sic by Carl Rei­necke, Arvo Pärt, Kenji Buch, Bo­huslav Mart­inu, º and John Har­bi­son, fea­tur­ing var­i­ous com­bi­na­tions of vi­o­lin, cello, oboe, horn, and piano. Fra­tres, an ex­am­ple of Pärt’s “tintinnab­uli” style (in which bell-ring­ing and sim­ple math­e­mat­i­cal ar­range­ments in­ter­sect), ob­sessed its com­poser, who pub­lished 10 dif­fer­ent or­ches­tra­tions for it, in­clud­ing (in 1980) the vi­o­lin-and-piano set­ting played here. Tick­ets for Twi­light Mu­sic ($25, dis­counts for se­niors, stu­dents, and young­sters) are avail­able at the door at the

Scot­tish Rite Cen­ter, 463 Paseo de Per­alta, prior to the per­for­mance, which be­gins at

3 p.m. on Sun­day, March 13. Call 989-7988.
